This online event will highlight the interdisciplinarity of STEM careers and ultimately illustrate how science and society are profoundly interconnected in our world today.
Now more than ever issues such as climate change and the COVID pandemic, to name a few, have demonstrated that scientific data must inform public policy, that proper government funding is needed to fuel innovation and the advancement of science, and that science data must be reported to the public in accessible yet accurate terms.
We invite you to join a panel that will explore topics from tech entrepreneurship to intellectual property, from science outreach to public policy, and how a STEM background can be applied to multiple professional fields, such as business, law, communication and public policy. We will hear from four women in different STEM career paths and then weave the audience questions into a broader conversation about science and society. See the speaker bios here.
