Women in STEM seminar series
This seminar series is student-led and gives Women in STEM a platform to celebrate their research and professional work and discuss some of the challenges they may have faced in their careers. This seminar series brings their stories to a wider audience of not just women, but men as well, and encourages participants to reflect on their experiences.
This seminar series includes a mix of speakers at different career stages and across academia and industry.

“Increasing exposure of Women and Non-binary people in STEM, and sharing their stories, is the goal of these seminars. I decided to help organize them so that I can influence positive change for women and non-binary people with a current career path in STEM, as well as for future students. The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet DTP is aimed at improving the world around us – and that includes increasing opportunity for marginalized groups through these seminars.”
