Women's and Gender Studies Annual Symposium: Women and Science

Julian Gill-Peterson

 

Please join us for the Women's and Gender Studies Annual Symposium, Women and Science, which will bring together female researchers and professors from various science disciplines, brought together by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at Rutgers-Newark and the RU-FAIR (Rutgers University Faculty Advancement and Institutional Re-imagination), a program designed to increase the participation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers by changing institutional culture and practices.  The day-long, public symposium, will be held on Wednesday, March 6th, from 9:00AM-3:30PM, and will include:

- A morning roundtable on “Women in Science,” featuring Rutgers female science professors, examining ways to attract and retain women in the science.

- An afternoon panel on “Gender, Race and Scientific Discourse,” which will address topics such as the history of science and women’s roles in it, the language of science, and how the study of science is shaped by gender and culture.
