Please note that this brunch is for women scientists only.
This event will undoubtedly be a great opportunity to discuss career development with a woman who fought for her position at a time in the recent past when deserving women were not given leadership roles in academia. Other topics of discussion may include what motivates women in science, why do women choose particular career paths, and anything else you want to discuss. A light brunch will be provided, so we ask for you to please register. We hope to see many of you there!
