  Description

The Shattered Glass Ceiling: Recognizing Women in Science

The Women in Science group (WinS) will be hosting a symposium to recognize the work and contributions of women to the advancement of science. The symposium will open with remarks from UNC-CH Chancellor Carol Folt, followed by a keynote address from Dr. Barbara Hamkalo from University of California, Irvine.  She will speak about her pioneering work and journey as a female scientist and her current outreach today to continue cultivating the love for science in young women. A reception and poster session will follow the talks, showcasing the work of graduate students and postdocs on campus. The session will end with a student-led presentation on the history of women in science and poster awards - the top postdoc and graduate student will each win an iPad Mini, generously donated by Dr. Hamkalo.
