EVENT IS STILL ON, pls register! Saturday March 7th 2015 for a celebration of YorkU Women in Science Alumnae & Students

2015-01-21 12.30.47In 2015, York University’s Science Faculty is celebrating its 50th Anniversary.

To celebrate the achievements of the many women alumnae who have graduated from York’s science programmes in the last few decades, we are holding an open house in the fabulous new Life Sciences Building on the Keele Campus.

We aim to recognize the diverse accomplishments and careers of female York STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) alums who graduated from the Faculty of Science/Faculty of Science and Engineering/Faculty of Pure and Applied Science.

We have created an exciting programme featuring dynamic alumnae and staff, who will speak about their careers and families and the challenges of balancing them.

Our panels cover both STEM women alumnae who have followed fairly traditional career paths and those whose lives have followed less traditional paths.

This event is also a change to connect our current students with graduates.

We welcome all current students as well as our female alumnae and their families.

We hope that everyone will have a chance to exchange their stories.
