When: October 25, 4-6pm
Where: Gerlinger Lounge
What: Undergraduates are invited to join WGS in this free event to discuss the next steps after earning their bachelor's of science
There will be an open Q&A session with graduate students from multiple STEM fields and backgrounds. Students are encouraged to ask about the graduate school application process, paths other than graduate school, careers with different degrees, GREs, and even how to get involved with research as an undergraduate! The panel will be followed by an open mingle/round table session with scientists/engineers from various career fields, including industrial scientists from start-ups and large corporations, research professors, teaching professors, computer scientists, and more!

Did you know that the UOWGS organizes a mentorship program that pairs undergraduate women in the sciences with graduate women mentors? We are looking for both undergraduate mentees and graduate mentors to help with JUMP. You can find more information on JUMP here, including what you need to apply. We have closed graduate mentor applications, and applications for undergraduate mentees are now open.

The cost is $15, and all proceeds will support the influential seminars and activites you're used to seeing from WGS. Plus, you'll look stunning, if I do say so myself.

The Women in Graduate Science (UOWGS) organization at the University of Oregon strives for gender equality by focusing on the professional development of women in all disciplines of science to enable them to become successful contributors to their fields.
This mission is accomplished by informative workshops, inspirational speakers, and a community outreach program. In addition, the organization provides social support for women scientists at the University of Oregon, and offers financial support with yearly scholarships.
The UOWGS invites all who encourage and support the advancement of women in science to become members and to help in our work towards an inclusive science community. The UOWGS is supported by the Graduate School, generous donors, fundraising events, and member dues.
UOWGS is also dedicated to the support and equal treatment of LGBTQ scientists. All UOWGS meetings and events are dedicated safe spaces.
A recent news article discusses a new study that contributes to the growing body of evidence which indicates that gender bias is a continuing challenge in the sciences. Want to change this? We do too.
