Advancing women in science

Our monthly Women in Science Speaker Series provides a powerful forum and supportive environment for emerging and advanced women leaders to share best practices, provide their insights and experience, and offer advice on leadership and professional development. 

Trailblazing leaders discuss the personal and professional challenges they’ve faced and the obstacles they’ve overcome to achieve their success. The series is designed to educate, empower and inspire women to advance as leaders and change agents in Rhode Island and beyond.
