2019 Scientista Symposium
Friday, March 29 - Sunday, March 31
MASS AWIS will have a table at the event. Come by and visit us!
The Scientista Symposium is a national conference that helps advance the careers of young women in STEMM by facilitating networking with representatives from top companies, a range of professional and technical skill workshops, and a chance to present research and compete for cash prizes.
This year’s program features 3 inspirational keynote speakers, 7 career panels on topics such as science communication, science policy, industry, and entrepreneurship in STEM, workshops on Python coding, a research poster session, a pitch competition to a panel of investors, free headshots(!), resume review sessions, and a career fair with 50 top organizations like Microsoft, Novartis, NASA, and more. Our conferences regularly attract over 500 young women from top institutions throughout the country – it’s a fantastic opportunity to cultivate professional relationships.
