I was delighted to be the Keynote Speaker at the Women in the Chemical Enterprise Breakfast at the American Chemical Society Spring National Meeting in San Diego hosted by the Women Chemists Committee.
My talk was titled "Coupling personal branding and social media to advance your career in the chemical sciences" held on Monday March 14, 2016 from 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, Indigo Ballroom C/G. This was a ticketed event on the WCC program track.
This workshop aims to help materials researchers understand how to leverage social media as a networking tool as well as a way to promote their work through the press. Social media includes twitter, websites, blogs, LinkedIn, and Facebook. More details to come.
