STEM Workshop to Focus on Supporting Women in Science

Do barriers exist that limit the advancement of women in science? A workshop this Friday will center on that topic and how the community can encourage women's success in science fields.

The discussion-centered Having it All: A STEM Work-Life Workshop is from noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday, April 26, in Gearhart Hall 102.

A pizza social in Gearhart Hall 206, the Graduate Student Lounge, will follow the workshop. Registration is appreciated to ensure pizza supplies, but it is not required for attendance. All students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.

Shelley Adamo will lead the workshop. She is a professor in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at Dalhousie University.

The workshop is sponsored by the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and the Association for Women in Science.

The Association for Women in Science plans to offer more STEM Work-Life Workshops. Each workshop will target an obstacle limiting the advancement of underrepresented groups in STEM careers and provide tips on how to navigate these barriers.
