Wanted: More Marie Curies and Percy Julians

The facts are undeniable—women and people of color are underrepresented as inventors, leaders, and entrepreneurs in STEM. But why? Come to listen to a panel discussion on this topic featuring leaders in industry and academia moderated by Jo Handelsman, Director of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. There will also be breakout sessions to learn about resources available for women and people of color in entrepreneurship and how to recognize and respond to bias in the workplace. This event will be held next Thursday, October 11th, from 2 pm to 5 pm in the Discovery Building (330 N. Orchard St.) and is being presented as part of the WARF Essential Topics Series and the upcoming Wisconsin Science Festival.
