WiSTEE Connect (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Entrepreneurship) is collaborating with the OSA Foundation to organize the 3rd international symposium “Global Women of Light” (GWL). This GWL symposium will focus on Career Strategies for Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Entrepreneurship. A full description of the program and biographies of the panelists will be available soon.
The goal of the second GWL Symposium is to continue building a strong network of women across academia, industry, government and to collaboratively establish strategies to advance women’s leadership across career ranks. Panel and round-table open discussions on “Collectively Advancing Women Leadership” will be hosted at this event. We have invited internationally renowned women leaders from both STEM and entrepreneurial backgrounds to share their strategies and best practices on advancing women leaders in these fields. A networking session will close out the program and provide an opportunity for informal discussion. A community of women across career ranks and disciplines in STEM and Entrepreneurship will continue to be built, creating cross-pollinated best practices and strategies across sectors. Career growth, mobility, mentorship, and leadership will be collectively developed by this community.
