Previous Events

Our major focus is an annual symposium, with invited speakers and attendees from institutions across New England and as far away as Maryland and Maine. We have organized 4 symposiums, held at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in 2014, 2016, and 2017, and at MIT in 2015. Participation has grown annually with 38 participants from 6 institutions in 2015, and 150 participants in 2017. Attendees have included graduate students, postdocs, early-career faculty and tenured faculty, as well as technicians, engineers, government scientists, funding program officers, business owners, and administrators.

When composing the symposium program, it has been our goal to devote equal time to presentations and discussions about women’s issues and pure science talks that celebrate the science being done by women.
