Unhidden Figures: A Panel Discussion on Women in STEMM

 

Monday October 22nd, 6:00 – 8:30 pm

The 2016 film “Hidden Figures” drew renewed attention to the challenges and successes of early women in STEMM fields. However, women still face reduced opportunities, inequality, sexism, and harassment while pursuing education and careers in STEMM.

 

The Ohio State University Women in STEMM Alumni Society invites students and alumni to attend a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Nicole Nieto of the OSU ADVANCE office, along with current OSU STEMM faculty, on how to build on the awareness generated by the success of “Hidden Figures“. Afterwards, attendees will have the opportunity to network.

 

Our distinguished panel includes:

 

Nicole Nieto, PhD – Program Director, Ohio State ADVANCE

Kim Burton, P.E., AICP CTP, LEED AP ND – Associate Professor of Practice, City and Regional Planning; President/Owner, Burton Planning Services

Monica Cox, PhD – Professor & Chair, Department of Engineering Education

Andrea Grottoli, PhD – Professor, School of Earth Science

Elizabeth Newton, PhD – Executive Director, Battelle Center for Science, Engineering, and Public Policy

Tanya Nocera, PhD – Assistant Professor-Clinical, Biomedical Engineering

 

Registration is required to attend: $5 for alumni and free for current undergraduate and graduate students. Event registration includes parking at Longaberger, pizza and soft drinks, panel discussion, and networking afterwards. Familiarity with the film or original book is not necessary to attend and benefit from this event. We welcome all who support women in STEMM.
