WiSH Seminar Series

In 2020-2021, we marked the centennial of Dr. Franklin’s birth with a seminar series showcasing how “her-story” has poignantly influenced women in STEM.

To go deeper into the theme of each symposium, a seminar series is being launched to continue the conversation through the academic year.

Upcoming Events

Announcements for next year's seminars will begin in Fall 2023.
