STEM Women in Innovation and Investing at #ACSINDY

STEM Women in Innovation and Investing

Featured symposium at the 246th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society: STEM Women in Innovation and Investing. This half day session located at the JW Marriott in Ballroom 7 is timed between the Women Chemists Committee luncheon and the Women Chemists Committee WCC Just Cocktails reception. This program is on the SCHB grid and is co-sponsored by BMGT, WCC and PROF. These are high-powered women speakers. Make sure to stick around for some equally high-powered networking at the end of the symposium as it transitions to cocktail hour.
