OCT 25: Science: The Gender Dimension

Explore the challenges and opportunities for women in STEM careers 

Women remain underrepresented in many fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Join the esteemed panelists, planetary scientist and NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal winner Dr. Laurie Leshin, zoologist and MacArthur Genius grant winner Dr. Sally Otto, and Vice President, Response Biomedical Corp and UBC Science Alumna Dr. Barbara Kinnaird-Steen, with our moderator Dr. Simon Peacock, Dean of UBC’s Faculty of Science, as they discuss the STEM gender gap.

Learn how we can encourage more young women to embrace science, listen to practical advice for women pursuing STEM careers, and discover what factors may affect young women’s careers in the sciences.
