UBC Women in Science is collaborating with UBC’s Microbiology & Immunology Student Association to host a panel discussion that brings extraordinary women in science together for a fireside chat about what it means to be a successful woman in the science sector. Join us for a night of enriching conversations, valuable networking, and career exploration!

You will have an opportunity to listen to speakers from various fields and professions, including academia, industry, and medicine. You will also be able to network with them and ask any questions you may have. Plus, there’ll be free food involved!

Stay tuned as we announce our speakers!

WHO: Everyone is welcome!
WHAT: Panel discussion and networking event where you can hear from and connect with women in various science-related fields and professions (i.e. academia, industry and medicine).
WHY: Women do fantastic work in science, but can sometimes be underrepresented (and overrepresented in other aspects). By engaging in conversation about how that impacts their careers, we can appreciate the great work that women (and men) do for science!

Everyone is welcome to attend this event; we feel that it’s important to have this conversation from all kinds of perspectives. We hope to see you there!
