In the News: Women in STEM

Florida Atlantic University’s Center for Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies presented its 2013 Women’s Leadership Forum on March 15. This year’s event focused on Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and featured a keynote address by former NASA astronaut, Jan Davis, Ph.D. Women’s History Month at FAU concludes this week with a meditation workshop, a discussion on women and leadership, Pampered OWLS, and a symposium on “Boundaries, Bodies and Dissidence: Negotiating New Spaces of Feminist Knowledge.” For more information visit the Women’s History Month events page and a recent article published in the UP, FAU’s student magazine.
