NYWiSTEM Inaugural Event – Forum & Networking Reception

NYWiSTEM is pleased to announce it’s inaugural event to be held with the NYAS!

What: NYWiSTEM Inaugural Event
When: Monday, November 11th, 6:30pm – 9:00pm
Where: NYAS (7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich Street, 40th floor)

NYWiSTEM is a recently formed group of women graduate student and postdoctoral researchers in the STEM fields. We represent institutions from across the greater metropolitan New York City area. The purpose of our group is to provide resources and programming that are not available at individual research institutions or institutional women in science groups. In order to best serve the needs of women in STEM in NYC, our inaugural event consists of three parts: a panel, discussion, and networking.

We will present a panel of successful women in science who will share their perspectives on the landscape of the women in STEM. They will also share their experiences, setting the stage for the discussion. The panelists include:

– Julia Hirschberg, Chair of Computer Science, Columbia University
– Jin Montclare, Assistant Professor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, NYU Poly
– Cecilia Marta, Assistant Director & Principal Research Investigator, Sanofi-Aventis
– Kelly Hoey – Co-Founder & Managing Director, Women Innovate Mobile

Next, roundtable discussions moderated by NYWiSTEM council give everyone the opportunity to share their own experiences and voice their suggestions for NYWiSTEM programming. These roundtable discussions also give you an opportunity to begin conversing with different people. Your ideas will be presented to the entire audience at the conclusion of the discussion.

Finally, we will host a networking reception to give everyone the chance to meet people outside of their tables. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be available to snack on while everyone mingles.

There is a registration fee for this event to help us cover the cost of the reception. The fee is the same for both non-members and NYAS members. More event information and registration can be found here.

  1. Would love to have more of these in the future! Unfortunately this one is right in the middle of the annual Society for Neuroscience conference…
