We are hard at work on the 2020 Maria Mitchell Women of Science Symposium (MMWSS). Our 2018 MMWSS was a resounding success with a sold out crowd – and a wait list! For 2020, we aim to expand with room for at least 180 participants.
We have a wonderful group of women in STEM who will be us. They include: Chiara Mingarelli of the Flatiron Institute, Tara Spann of Eversource, Jen Heemstra of Emory University, Catalina Martinez of NOAA, Simil L. Raghavan of EngineerGirl and the National Academy of Engineering, Dionne Hoskins Brown of NOAA, Serra Hoagland of the US Forestry Service, Nicole Cabrera Salazar of Movement Consulting and many more!
Topics to be included are: the state of women in STEM, inclusion, diversity, intersectionality, mentoring, and retaining and supporting women in STEM.
We will have speakers, panel discussions, and our salon-style gatherings that proved to be a fantastic and constructive vehicle for creating real-world solutions for women and girls in STEM.
Please plan to join us. Keep your eyes on the website at www.mmwiss.org with further updates and tickets.
