Are You a Science Writer / Graduate of the UCSC Science Communications Program?

The Brandeis' Women in Science Initiative. Brandeis' Women in Science Initiative (WSI) stems from collaborative efforts among Brandeis’ Women’s and Gender Studies, Physical Science and Life Science Departments.

We seek to create a community of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty to foster the development of women in the sciences. In our short tenure, WSI has hosted women scientists from the Brandeis community as well as the greater Boston area to participate in dialogs about establishing mentor/mentee relationships, striking a work/life balance, pursuing alternative (non-academic) careers in science and finding one’s voice as a woman scientist.

We'd like to invite a local science writer, preferably a graduate of UCSC's Science Communication Program to speak with WSI about alternative careers in the Sciences. Please contact Mareisha if you are interested.
