Our first installment of Lattes with the Ladies was a huge success! We want to extend our gratitude to Dr. Maria Tahamont for coming to speak to PGWISE members about what it is like to oversee and teach in the Biology Department at a small liberal arts college.
We also had out first C.V. writing workshop, in which Rosanne Lurie of careers services helped our members fine tune their C.Vs. for their NSF applications and gave us some pointers on crafting an NIH biosketch.
This week PGWISE and PSDG will be co-hosting Dr. Cathy Campbell, the president and CEO of CRDF global, a non-profit dedicated to facilitating science and technology transfer between the United States and countries that were formerly members of the Soviet Union. She will be discussing her role as a scientist and leader in the arena of science diplomacy, and the role of women in scientific leadership positions. Come by on October 16th from 12-2pm in the Smilow Center for Translational Research (floor 11 room 146) to share some lunch and ask Dr. Campbell your questions.
Remember to swing my Ladder 15 on Thursday for the Joint Graduate Association Happy Hour, co-hosted by PGWISE, the Elizabeth Blackwell Society, Women in Chemistry, and Penn Biotech Consulting Group, to snag free drink tickets and to network with other graduate students on campus. The happy hour is at Ladder 15 from 6-8pm on October 15th. We will be handing away 100 free drink tickets at the door, so come meet members from all of these graduate student organizations!
