The TEAM ADVANCE Women in STEM Series promotes visibility and achievements of women of color and white women in STEM fields across the University. Each Women in STEM event features a noted woman in STEM sharing her story, experiences, and success strategies. Events follow an interview format, in which our guest of honor is interviewed by a member of TEAM ADVANCE, followed by Q&A with the audience.

The Women in STEM Series is open to all members of the University. Early-career women faculty currently participating in TEAM ADVANCE Peer Mentoring Circles are highly encouraged to attend.
