The symposium will start with a series of presentations describing some of these women, followed by talks on the experience of women in science by alumnae from the department who have gone on to successful careers in academia and industry. Alumnae and attendees will also have the opportunity to interact in a panel discussion. Finally, a networking session at 3:30 pm, co-hosted by Yale Scientific Magazine, will foster the contacts that support the future of women in science.
