BIO5 Inspiring Women in STEM

Are you a Woman in STEM researcher? Do you have questions or concerns about being a woman in STEM? Would you like to learn from women who have distinguished themselves in the STEM field?

An interactive panel of inspiring women from crossdisciplinary STEM fields will share their unique journeys. The panelists will be representative of different career stages to offer the broadest perspective possible. Following the panel discussion there will be a one-on-one networking session with panelists providing attendees with an opportunity to gain further insight. This event is open to local community members, high school students, and the UA community at large, and is designed to inspire women in their pursuit of a STEM education and/or career.
