WiSE-GWIS Joint Symposium

May 20, 2017 from 1 – 5 p.m.

Join us in LSRC Love Auditorium (Rm B101) for a mini research symposium hosted by WiSE and the Research Triangle Chapter of Graduate Women In Science (GWIS).

The goals of this event are to build a local community of women in science by encouraging networking and to empower women in science by providing a supportive and encouraging environment in which you can present your science to a broader scientific audience.

The symposium will include a keynote presentation, short scientific talks, and a poster and networking reception with refreshments. Our hope is that this symposium will be an opportunity for people at all stages of their career and with projects at various levels of completion to be able to come and share their science with scientists outside their discipline, department or University.

This event is free for all participants. Registration is now OPEN! If you would like to be considered for a short talk, you must register by APRIL 25, 2017. Presenters will be selected by GWIS and Duke WISE officers and notified by May 1, 2017. General registration (posters and nonpresenters) will be open until May 1, 2017. To register, click here!

Women’s Networking Event at ScienceOnline’09

January 16, 2009

WiSE is partnering with ScienceOnline’09, a national science blogging conference, to host a Triangle-wide networking event for women scientists, engineers, educators, researchers, science writers, and students. This event also includes many of our local women’s groups and promises to be a networking extravaganza. Following a networking reception with free light eats and drinks, there will be a presentation by our guest speaker, Rebecca Skloot, a freelance science writer, contributing editor at Popular Science, and correspondent for PBS’s NOVA scienceNOW.
