For the woman reading this who attended the Women in Science and Technology Conference this year I hope you were as surprised as I was at how much value was packed into the event!
What is the WIST conference?
- A one-day symposium focusing on career and personal development, as well as peer networking
- Inspiring, prominent keynote speakers
- Exciting and informative workshops, round-tables, and seminars for individuals at all stages of their careers in both academia and industry
- An excellent opportunity to network, develop new skills, and explore career opportunities with 300 attendees from the scientific community.
It’s a time when we women can come together and learn from the experienced and highly educated keynote speakers and is a retreat from daily life or rotary learning.
Past workshop topics have been as diverse as networking, negotiation, and effective job search strategies to the business of science, end-to-end drug development and bioinformatics to research and teaching in the academic setting.
