  1. Brookhaven Women in Science Talk

    "She Wins—We Win: The Criticality of Supporting Women in STEM and Innovation"

    Paula McCauley, Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems, University of Central Florida

    Thursday, August 15, 2019, 4 pm
    Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    McCauley will discuss the critical need to support women in their careers in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields and innovation opportunities on a global level. As McCauley will explain, the impact of improving STEM education and career opportunities for women is an issue of national importance and is impacting America's innovation potential, national security, and global position as a leader in innovation. Dr. McCauley will share scholarly literature and strategies from her book, Transforming Your STEM Career Through Leadership and Innovation: Inspiration and Strategies for Women, published in 2013 by Elsevier, as well as organizational best practices and examples from her personal experience regarding key points where the support of others, particularly women, were pivotal in her career.

  2. Gertrude S. Goldhaber Award Ceremony

    Wednesday, July 3, 2019, 12 pm
    Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Brookhaven Women in Science is pleased to present this year's Gertrude Scharff Goldhaber Award to Brooke Russell. The Gertrude S. Goldhaber Prize was established to honor Gertrude Scharff-Goldhaber for her outstanding contributions in the field of nuclear physics and her support of women in science, and to recognize substantial promise and accomplishment by a woman graduate student in physics. This event is open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

  3. BWIS Sponsored Event

    "A Career in Magnets: Past, Present, and Future"

    Kathleen Amm, Brookhaven National Laboratory Superconducting Magnet Division

    Thursday, June 27, 2019, 4 pm
    Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Dr. Kathleen Amm will share the exciting path you can take in a career in applied science and leadership. Her primary research areas include: MRI and medical applications of superconductivity, superconducting electric machines, high temperature superconductivity, material properties at low temperatures, and permanent magnets. She will discuss how you can make an impact on the world with your applied science research. Kathleen obtained her Ph.D.-Condensed Matter Physics from Florida State University, and a B.Sc.-Mathematics and Physics-University of Toronto. She has over 25 years of experience in superconductivity and magnet design. Kathleen is currently the head of the Superconducting magnet division at Brookhaven, where she works with her team to deliver innovative accelerator and high field magnet technology. She is a member of several professional societies - she is a senior member IEEE and a GE Women's Network Steering Committee member between other. She is also DFSS Black Belt Certified and MATRIZ certified.

    "How Beauty Leads Physics Astray"

    Presented by Sabine Hossenfelder, Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, Germany

    Tuesday, April 9, 2019, 5 pm
    Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Hosted by: Vivian Stojanoff

    To develop fundamentally new laws of nature, theoretical physicists often rely on arguments from beauty. Simplicity and naturalness in particular have been strongly influential guides in the foundations of physics ever since the development of the standard model of particle physics. In this lecture I argue that arguments from beauty have led the field into a dead end and discuss what can be done about it.

    "Natural Products: Active Pharmaceuticals and Their Derivatives"

    Graciela Diaz de Delgado, Universidad de los Andes, Venezuela

    Thursday, March 21, 2019, 4 pm
    Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Natural sources, such as plants, lichens, fungi, and marine organisms, constitute an important source of potential pharmaceutical compounds. Different plant extracts have been widely used by different cultures to treat a diverse range of ailments. In her lecture, Professor Diaz de Delgado will talk about the pharmaceutical applications and importance of these natural products.

    "She Is on Her Way: The Changing World for Women in Science in the Developing World"

    Presented by Shobhana Narasimhan, Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research

    Friday, March 8, 2019, 12 pm
    Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Narashima will discuss how women scientists in the developing world face a unique set of challenges. Besides coping with limited resources, they also face societal constraints imposed by their gender. She will also explore statistics that show how some developing countries have a higher proportion of women scientists than economically developed nations. This event is part of the "Girl Power in STEM: Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change!" Symposium (March 8-9) sponsored by BWIS and Stony Brook University Women in Science and Engineering.

  7. Brookhaven Women In Science Speaker

    "Probing the Epigenome to Target Breast Cancer"

    Camila dos Santos, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

    Thursday, January 31, 2019, 4 pm
    Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    The epigenome is a multitude of chemical compounds that can modify the DNA and DNA-associated proteins in the cell, altering the genome leading to heritable mutations. Dr. dos Santos studies mechanisms underlying these epigenetic regulations of normal and malignant mammary gland development. Her group developed a model in which pregnancy can prevent the development of mammary tumors, an approach that will yield answers directly related to cancer prevention. Dr. dos Santos completed her Postdoctoral studies with Gregory Hannon at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Recipient of several awards, including the 2018 Pershing Square Sohn Cancer Research Award, Dr. Camila dos Santos is member of the CSHL WISE executive board.

  8. BWIS Talk: The Science of Success: Accelerating Women in STEM Leadership for Better Results

    DDI Consultants

    Thursday, November 29, 2018, 4 pm
    Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Less than 30 percent of the world's researchers are women, an imbalance which is gradually growing smaller as more women are pursuing degrees in science. But while more women are entering the field, men still hold the vast majority of leadership roles, a gender gap that gets wider at each progressive level of leadership and has shown little change over the years. This disparity is not just an issue for aspirational women in science, but threatens the success of projects and research advancements. In this session, leadership experts Jazmine Boatman and Nick Razzette will discuss the business benefits of gender diversity in leadership and address how bias creates wasted potential, keeping women on the sidelines when their talents, knowledge, and perspectives could be triggering breakthrough success. In addition, they will present actionable steps to help women amplify their impact as leaders, and offer specific steps men can take to support gender equity in the workplace. Coffee and refreshments at 3:45 p.m. This event is open to the public.

  9. BWIS Lecture: Fly Girls: The Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II

    Bruce Kagan
