Global Women of Light Symposium

Global Women of Light Symposium

On October 17, 2016, WiSTEE Connect (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Entrepreneuship) collaborated with the OSA Foundation to organize an international symposium entitled “Global Women of Light.” This symposium took place in Rochester, NY at the 2016 Frontiers in Optics, an annual conference held by the Optical Society.

According to Dr. Jia Qiao, “The overall goal of the “Global Women of Light” symposium is to shine light upon women's careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and entrepreneurship, recruit women across career ranks and disciplines, and build a sustainable community of women in both academia and industry from which career growth, mobility, and leadership opportunities may be sought out."
