As part of the Distinguished Women in Science speaker series, the Chemistry Department welcomes at least one eminent female chemist per semester to share both her research and experiences with the larger Brown community. Each speaker is invited to present a Friday colloquium and lunch with several graduate schools, during which she is encouraged to discuss her path to success. Speakers are both invited and hosted by graduate students. Funding for this program is generously provided by the Brown Chemistry Department and the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity.
The series was piloted with Prof. Catherine Drennan (MIT) and Suzanne Walker (Harvard).
