Across the spectrum of fields in STEM, women endure significant barriers and stressors because STEM is dominated by men. This event will focus on the psychological toll that this stress has on women starting from childhood and throughout their career and the psychological resilience needed to survive and be successful. Dr. Inger Burnett-Zeigler will be presenting on this topic, followed by a panel discussion led by Dr. Sheehan Fisher with girls/women who are at different phases of their career. The panel discussion will focus on their experiences of dealing with adversity as they are pursuing their careers and how they have learned to cope in order to achieve their goals. The event will end with an opportunity for audience participation and questions.

Lunch will be served. Space is limited. RSVP required.

Hosted by Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences.
