The June meet up is here! We'll see you all on the back patio of The Penny for an opportunity talk ‘shop’, and meet like-minded scientists from different fields. And enjoy some cold beers, of course.
For this monthly meet up (our third!), we want to bring a little request/challenge to you all - this month is focused on COMMUNITY and in the spirit of the theme, we want you to pass this invitation along to somebody who you work with, your dog's veterinarian, your local pharmacist, a classmate, a non-scientist etc. By developing the community of women in STEM within Victoira, we hope to provide a place where stimulating scientific conversations (and the casual ones too) and connections can take place!
Women in Science is a budding initiative to connect women pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The goal is to achieve a supportive and engaging environment that fosters collaboration and success of women pursuing STEM fields. To this end, we issue you all a challenge: at this event, talk to someone new and tell them why you kick-butt in your chosen field. Tell them what makes you a fantastic asset and why your contributions are irreplaceable. And, of course, provide a supportive and congratulatory ear for the rad women scientists around you.
We welcome everyone interested in supporting the Women in Science initiative, regardless of race, gender expression, and sexuality.
We hope to see you there for a fun evening!
