Please be sure all proposals are submitted here by August 3oth.
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.
Check out the article on Women of Science from CUNY Newswire
“The inspiration [CUNY female science professors] provide to the University, with its 60 percent female student body, is clear. In an effort to spread the word about these faculty members and their ongoing, important work in labs and with accomplished students year-round at all CUNY colleges, the University is spotlighting its women scientists on its web pages and on posters headlined “Breaking Boundaries in Science Research.””

CUNY Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math is a Chartered Organization at The CUNY Graduate Center, in New York, NY. We were founded in 2007 with the primary objective of creating a network of mutually supportive individuals at CUNY who are interested in the professional development and career advancement of women in the sciences, technology, engineering, math, and related fields. This is our new blog, where we will be posting on news, events, research, and opportunities related to our mission!
