This panel aims to engage students into thinking about women in the sciences and technology sectors by looking at three different phases:
· What can draw more women into these fields of study?
· Why are women under-represented in these fields both in their studies and in the workforce?
· In light of the challenges that women face both in the study of these fields and in the workforce, we would like to recognize the success that women in these fields have achieved.
