Women have played a significant role in advancement of STEM fields throughout history and it is essential to celebrate their contributions. In honor of Women's History Month, we are excited to hold a panel discussion focusing on different experiences of women in STEM. This discussion provides a platform to celebrate their achievements, discuss the prejudices they face, and inspire the next generation of scientific workforce. Our panelists will share stories, experiences and anecdotes from their careers and how they found a home in STEM.
Join us for a special event hosted by the Women’s Interlaboratory Network, a group of women from national labs across the DOE complex.
Collaboratively Presented by Berkeley Lab Nuclear Science Division and its IDEA Council, The Berkeley Lab Lambda Alliance, and WSEC.
