them, the Women In Science and Technology Forum will provide a unique opportunity to meet professional women and receive guidance through
workshops, panel discussions and interview sessions. Also, Forum participants will hear about a variety of programs from colleges and
universities, and learn about resources that are available to help them achieve their education and career goals.

I look forward to seeing you on Friday, November 3rd!


I just want to encourage everyone to attend this event-- I’ve been to it for the past couple years, and it’s really helped me put some direction in my life (I first became interested in Chemical Engineering because of this seminar), and it was great meeting all of these amazing women. The college panel was one of the biggest helps for me- it helped me focus on what I want to look for in a college and how to go about applying.
I hope to see you all there!!

For NYC teams, there is plans for a road trip to New Hampshire for the WISTF on November 3rd (8:30AM - 2PM).

Girls! This is an excellent opportunity to attend the Forum.
