Celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on Friday, February 9, 2024 with us at Hood College!
Join Woman to Woman Mentoring, Inc., Hood College and Leidos Biomedical Research, Inc., current operator of the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, for a panel discussion on inspiring and creating space for women in science. A virtual option will also be available for those who cannot attend in person.
During the panel discussion, participants will hear firsthand from women in science share their perspectives on pursuing careers in science, advancing allyship and mentorship, achieving goals through self-advocacy, and more. Afterwards, there will be a networking opportunity available to in person participants.
“Women in Science Speak,” is a hybrid event in partnership with Woman to Woman Mentoring, a local non-profit as well as Hood College, a local private college who we have supported for many years. The International Day of Women and Girls in Science is Sunday, February 11th, and our hybrid educational event on Friday, February 9th is commemorating this observance.
