(Building 4 on MIT’s campus, room 237)
Join us for a panel discussion with three amazing women professors; Prof. Melissa Franklin, the first female tenured faculty member in the Department of Physics at Harvard University, Prof. Amy Keating, Co-Director of the MIT Biology Graduate Program, and Prof. Hazel Sive, Professor of Biology at MIT, who have been trailblazers in their respective fields. They will discuss what they feel has contributed to their success, the challenges that they have had to overcome, and advice for graduate women planning their career paths. Most of all, they will share their stories of how they have made an impact! Questions from the audience will be welcomed.
