Webinar Series: STEM Supremes
In Conversation with Women in Science
Who are the mold-breakers, ceiling crashers, and changemakers pushing the boundaries of STEM? In this series of conversations of live virtual events, we'll talk one-on-one with wonder women in science and tech, to explore their careers, discoveries, and what they see on the horizon in their respective fields. Along the way, we'll bust a few myths about women in science.
If you can see her, you can be her.
Nobel Laureate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn joins us to talk telomeres and the importance of diversity and inclusion in the sciences. The conversation will cover Dr. Blackburn’s career path, groundbreaking research and views on what is next in her field.
Renowned astrophysicist Dr. France Córdova will discuss her scientific achievements and how she navigated a varied professional trajectory, including her experiences as NASA's Chief Scientist and her tenure leading the National Science Foundation.
Dr. Barbara Liskov is a pioneer in object-oriented programming – the foundation for much of the computational functionality we take for granted today. In this virtual conversation, Dr. Liskov will discuss her career arc and the groundbreaking research that led to her winning the 2009 Turing award.
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Rebecca Oppenheimer, a comparative exoplanetary scientist, to discover more about the worlds outside our solar system. Dr. Oppenheimer will discuss how she reached her current position, her research developing innovative technology to study distant planets and her work as a curator at the American Museum of Natural History.
Dr. Padmanee Sharma is an internationally renowned physician scientist who studies how the immune system can be harnessed to treat cancer. Join us for this virtual conversation where Dr. Sharma will discuss her pioneering methods to design better clinical trials and improved therapies for cancer patients, as well as what drew her to the field of medicine and how she balances thriving research and clinical programs.
Webinars will be archived for future viewing. A link to the video recording of each webinar will be provided to registrants within 30 days of the event date, and will remain available for 60 days following publication, after which it will revert to Member-only access. Not a Member? Join today.
