1 min read

The Task Force on Women in Science and Engineering is sponsoring two upcoming forums for female postdoctoral fellows of the Harvard community. All female postdoctoral fellows from the University are invited to attend, share their thoughts, and give concrete suggestions on how Harvard can improve the postdoctoral experience for women and better equip women for a successful and productive career in science.

The first of two forums will be held March 14 at 9 a.m. in the amphitheater of the New Research Building, 77 Ave. Louis Pasteur. A light breakfast will be served. On March 23, a forum will be held at the Science Center, Hall B, from 3 to 5 p.m. Laurie Glimcher, Irene Heinz Given Professor of Immunology, and Michael E. Greenberg, professor of neurology, will co-chair.

In addition, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and the Harvard Graduate School of Education are co-sponsoring a discussion on March 21 titled “Impediments to Change: Revisiting the Women in Science Question.
