Join us for a different kind of Symposium.
“We are women studying together,” Maria Mitchell told her Vassar College students. Maria Mitchell, America’s first woman astronomer, believed in learning by doing.
The Second Maria Mitchell Womxn in Science (STEM) Symposium is designed to serve as a source of inspiration and support and to be a hands-on experience in which all attendees are actively participating and problem-solving. Keynote speakers, panels, and salon-style gatherings will offer a unique environment in which all voices can be heard and encouraged. Participants will connect with colleagues and mentors and devise strategies to encourage and keep girls in STEM and support womxn in STEM at the beginning, middle, and late career stages.
Come together to find solutions for retention and to curb the “leaky pipeline.”
Help us celebrate womxn and girls in STEM.
