Carleton Celebration of Women in Science and Engineering

Thursday April 8 2010
10:15-11:15am and 2:30-7:00pm
5115 HP

The Carleton Celebration of Women in Science and Engineering is a showcase of graduate students, faculty, and alumni of Carleton University. The number of women who enrol in many science and engineering programs is quite low, so the amazing things they do can easily go unnoticed. This day puts them in the spotlight.

The goal of this event is two-fold. First, we aim to provide networking opportunities for all female science and engineering students. Second, we would like to see members of the greater Carleton community attend these talks and learn about some of the great things happening in science and engineering.

Many of our speakers are presenting their research, but there are also professional development and outreach talks, inspirational stories, and a round table to discuss issues faced by women in science and engineering.

See the schedule of talks on our website!
