- The Scientista Symposium 2017 April 8th & 9th, 2017 Microsoft Manhattan, NYC
SCIENTISTAS STAND UP! BECOMING A LEADER IN STEM
About this year's theme
Women in STEM are underrepresented in leadership positions across the board. Studies show that compared to men, women in STEM are not taught to develop valuable business skills that will help them advance in their respective STEM industries. The ScientistasStand Up conference aims to change this by giving college and graduate women in STEM the training and exposure that is missing from their education curriculum.
The Scientista Symposium 2017 - Scientistas Stand Up will feature talks and panels from female leaders across STEM fields. Attendees will then be able to dive in depth into one of four areas STEM leadership by selecting a track for a workshop breakout session: (1) Entrepreneurship (2) Management (3) Academia (4) Social Good
The conference will also feature our hallmark Scientista Poster Session, which is an opportunity for collegiate women to present their original research to an international audience, and for attendees to learn about original scientific discoveries that are being conducted by their peers.
Full conference agenda and speaker list coming soon - stay tuned!
How we're different
The Scientista Symposium was designed with a Scientista in mind. We know that college and graduate women in STEM are busy, and need to make their time count. Made for women in STEM, by women in STEM, the Symposium was envisioned to be not only inspirational, but valuable, giving you the connections and opportunities you need to truly advance yourself. We've designed it to be affordable and convenient, combining all of the career workshops, networking experience, female role models, and skills workshops you'll need for the year into a day of fun.
