Title: Women in STEM

Speaker(s): Dean Carla E. Brodley, Dr. Jackie Isaacs, Rose DiMaio, Azita Razzaghi, and Dean Susan Parish

Location: Northeastern University, 805 Columbus Avenue, Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC), Boston, Massachusetts 02120

Abstract

Women have been equal participants in STEM research and discovery, but until recently, they have been disappointingly underrepresented.  It has taken years for their contributions to be recognized and given their due accolades.  But, while women in STEM may have seeped into popular culture today – even Hollywood! – they continue to face several barriers: many STEM fields are still entirely dominated by men, with few women gaining the opportunities to reach top echelons.

Powered by Women Who Empower and Northeastern Circuits programming, we invite you to join us for what promises to be an impactful, informative and awe-inspiring evening dedicated to Women in STEM.  Hear from a multigenerational panel of Northeastern women dedicated to accelerating the values of their respective fields, as they open up for a candid discussion on the real opportunities, obstacles, successes and pitfalls that have helped shape their careers.

Learn more about speakers and panelists below. Hope you’ll join us for an evening of inspiration!
