I am very glad to share the following announcement about WeSTEM:
Our flagship initiative, the Women Empowered in STEM (weSTEM) conference, provides graduate students with access to current and future STEM leaders, lending insight into diverse career paths stemming from a graduate degree. Unlike other conferences, weSTEM focuses on graduate school. Through lectures, workshops, and breakout sessions, we will discuss and address those issues that are unique to the graduate student experience. At weSTEM, you will meet successful women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. You will be motivated to complete your degree and inspired to excel in your future career!
weSTEM is scheduled for Saturday, February 7, 2015 at the I Hotel and Conference Center at UIUC. Applications to attend weSTEM are now open. Financial support is available for travel and accommodation – apply early to ensure consideration for funding!
