Join us on International Women’s Day for a celebration of the experiences and motivations that can shape a scientist’s career.

Is there only one way to be a scientist? How can broader life experiences impact science? What challenges exist in achieving your goals? Our expert panel will discuss their career paths, overcoming challenges, and how hobbies and family have inspired research.
