FREE Webinar on Women in Science and Engineering
Women have just as much opportunity for career triumph in science and engineering (and other STEM fields) as men, and yet there is evidence that women are not paid as much as men, nor are there as many women in management and leadership roles in many industries. Why is this? We will explore how women can ensure their own success and enable their team members to thrive. Both women and men will find this workshop helpful and motivational in thinking about their own career advancement strategies and those of their colleagues. Join us for this free event, being held on October 13, 2016 at 2PM ET and co-sponsored by APS Physics.
