WiSTEE Connect (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Entrepreneurship) is to organize the 4th international symposium “Global Women of Light” at the 2018 Frontiers in Optics conference on 15 September 2019 in Washington DC, US, collaborating with the OSA Foundation. The program will be hosted at the OSA Headquarters from 9:00-16:00.
The overall goal is to continue building strong network among women across academia, industry and government, and cooperatively establish strategies to advance women’s leadership across career ranks. Panel and round-table discussions on "Career Strategies and Intersecting Science and Entrepreneurship" will be hosted at this even. Women leaders from academy, industry and government will present strategies and best practice on promoting emerging women leadership in their respective sectors. A networking session will close out the day’s program and provide an opportunity for informal discussion. A community of women across career ranks and disciplines in STEM and Entrepreneurship will continue to be built, from which career growth, mobility, mentorship, and leadership can be collectively developed.
Note that you do not have to register for the conference and the registration for the symposium is free. Men, women, students, and professionals alike are invited to attend! Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
