The Northern Colorado Graduate Women in Science (GWIS) chapter hosted a panel discussion and networking event on April 30, 2015 regarding the experiences of several professional women in STEM fields. The five person panel consisted of experts from academia, government and, private industry along Colorado’s Front Range. Following a brief panel discussion, panelists engaged in small group discussions, where attendees could ask questions and mingle in a comfortable setting. Panelists provided valuable insight to attendees on a range of topics including; managing the duality of family life and career goals, discovering and embracing ones own talents, and navigating the tenure track in academia.
