Registration is open for the MIT150 symposium, "Leaders in Science and Engineering: The Women of MIT," which will take place in Kresge Auditorium on March 28 and 29. This symposium will engage current students and postdocs, junior and senior faculty, alumni and friends of MIT, and is woven around the landmark 1996 and 1999 reports of the Faculty Committees on Women in Science and their subsequent impact inside and beyond MIT.
The symposium will have plenary sessions of talks by outstanding women faculty. In addition, there will be sessions giving a historical and current assessment of women in science and engineering, including the impact of the 1999 report. Two panel discussions will address effective practices for promoting gender equity and challenges ahead.
