The Chicago Council on Science and Technology (C2ST) in partnership with the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) Chicago Chapter have come together to bring you its first ever all-day Women in Science Symposium 2010: Building an Identity. The symposium, to be held on April 17th, 2010 will allow women scientists, at the academic, industry and government levels, to better recognize the number and diversity of their counterparts; create a sense of solidarity, and; broaden the spectrum of opportunities for women in Chicagoland.
Specifically the Women in Science Symposium will focus on:
- Insights from the field highlighting personal stories, professional ambitions, and milestones from some of the areas most recognized leaders
- Address the state of women in a rapidly changing science landscape across academic and government sectors.
- Identify needs for the future of social and systemic change at the local and national levels; science as an industry; work/life balance.
