There will be basic tea party fare: sandwiches, salads, sweets, tea & lemonade. Also, if you submit your LIR train tickets to the DSC by the 28th, we can cover the cost of travel. You can email me, Stephanie, or Lisa to help out with that process.
This event is generously hosted by Annelies, a former co-chair and GC alum. Please RSVP with her by email, and for the address at annelies [dot] kamran [at] gmail [dot] com

We’d like to thank out member Gulustan Dogan for coming up with the idea for a Women in STEM Workshop Series! In line with her vision, and consistent with the feedback we’ve received from other members, we’re recommending workshops are accessible to students from any background, and with any level of technical proficiency.
Also, there is a great demand for student workshops in GIS mapping, citation managers, text analysis, network analysis, data visualization, statistical packages and introductory programming. If you think you might have something to add, even if you don’t see it listed here, we strongly encourage your proposal!
CUNY Women in STEM is planning a workshop series for the 2012-2013 academic year. Currently, proposed workshops include: Open Source Tools for Network Analysis, Intro to Programming, and A Gentle Intro to R. If you have an idea for a workshop that isn’t listed, or might be interested in facilitating a session, let us know using the contact form on our website, or find us on Facebook. All proposed workshops should be suitable for beginners.
Submit a request or provide more information on your workshop proposal in the General Inquiries area.
A new group Facebook page can be found here. Join the group for updates and other announcements.
We have many things to celebrate this year! Please join us for lunch on Friday June 1st at 1PM Since we will have to pay in advance, signup is required. Please RSVP before 5/26.
