The UChicago Women in STEM Symposium is a one-day conference with an emphasis on addressing systemic sociological issues faced by women in STEM. This year, it will be held on Saturday, May 9, 2020 at the William Eckhardt Research Center.

The schedule includes plenary speakers, workshops on areas of interest to women in STEM, research talks, and networking opportunities. The goals of this conference are: to build a community in the Chicagoland area to support long-lasting collaborations and/or mentorships among female mathematicians, engineers, and scientists; to provide an opportunity for students to present research in a supportive, non-threatening environment; to introduce women to role models in STEM; and to educate local mathematicians, engineers, and scientists on addressing challenges especially relevant to women in STEM.
