PhD student Sarabeth Buckley will spend a month this summer at the Ewha Womans University in Seoul, South Korea, for the Ewha-Luce International Seminar, “Expanding Horizons 2018.” The program, for women graduate students from the U.S. and East Asia, aspires to promote equal opportunities for those in STEM fields, with the ultimate goal being to create a collaborate and inclusive environment for all. Fewer than two dozen students from around the world are invited each year.

“I will be working with women scientists from the United States and from Asia in workshops where we will learning how to be a leader and develop a vision for how to do this,” Buckley says. “We’ll present our research, but also have discussions concerning the challenges we face and the role of women in STEM as well as engage in cultural experiences. I’m very excited to have some of the same conversations I have with my friends in GWISE with women in similar situations, but in an entirely different culture and system.
