Women in Science

On Thursday, November 15th, Duke Graduate Students, Postdoctoral fellows, Program Managers, Faculty Members and Investigators attended a Women in Science Mentoring event hosted by the DHVI's Giny Fouda, Ph.D. and Maria Blasi, Ph.D. Guest speaker Nancy Haigwood, Ph.D. from the Oregon National Primate Research Center at OHSU facilitated the discussion and covered a range of topics from job negotiation, family balance, motherhood in science, to networking, navigating male-dominated environments and transitioning between industry and academia. This empowering event created a safe space for women to listen to each other's concerns and questions and engage in conversations on how to navigate adversity in their careers.
