Women graduate/professional students: Attend talk on gender awareness in your career

The Women Faculty Leadership Development Institute of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women will sponsor a conversation with women graduate and professional students and post-docs on May 10 from 8 to 9:30 p.m. in Glidden House.

Molly Carnes, a professor in the Departments of Medicine, Psychiatry and Industrial Systems Engineering at University of Wisconsin–Madison, will lead the talk, titled “How Gender Awareness May Help Your Career—Information & Advice.” Students can join Carnes for a complimentary buffet breakfast and conversation in a private dining room.

Reservations are required; RSVP to surveymonkey.com/s/Carnesbreakfast.

Carnes co-founded and co-directs the Women in Science and Engineering Leadership Institute (WISELI) at the University of Wisconsin and also directs the Center for Women’s Health Research and the Women Veterans Health Program. For more than a decade, she has studied how to increase the diversity of leadership in academic medicine, science and engineering, with a particular focus on gender equity. Her research employs an epidemiological perspective to try to identify what is “killing” women students on their way to becoming tenured faculty. She has won multiple awards and published more than 100 papers.
