I am excited and proud to be part of the Northern New Mexico Expanding Your Horizons for the 2nd year in a row. This year I am organizing the presenters for students workshops at our upcoming event February 15th, 2018! This event is scheduled to connect over 250 middle school girls with female professionals in STEM fields through 16 interactive workshops. Each student will attend two workshops, a career fair, and a keynote speech by Dr. Jennifer Hollingsworth!
As a researcher inspired by female scientists and advisers and one who seeks to remain informed about inequalities among peers in science, I am an advocate for women, diversity, and equality within our scientific community and encourage everyone else to be one as well. Check out the Expanding Your Horizons Network and see how you can be involved with a chapter near you!
