With Special Guest Speaker Alice Hogan
Making ADVANCE: Reflections on Public Policy and Women in Science

GWISE will host its Annual Fall Luncheon on Wednesday, November 10th at noon in the 9th floor Trustees Ballroom at One Silber Way. This year, we are very pleased to have Alice Hogan as our luncheon speaker. Currently an independent consultant working on programs and policies to advance the participation of women in STEM, she was the founding Program Director for the NSF ADVANCE Program. The title of her talk is Making ADVANCE: Reflections on Public Policy and Women in Science. We are very excited to have her share some thoughts with us. After the talk, we will adjourn to dessert and discussion. This round-table luncheon is an opportunity for all of our members to enjoy lunch, network, hear from community leaders, discuss issues related to women in science, and provide feedback to how GWISE can better serve the community. We would love to see you there!

Co-sponsored by BU-WISE.
