Q-SORT Women in Science Lecture Series

Although the number of women pursuing careers in science has increased modestly over the last two decades, the National Science Foundation reports that only 28 percent of the workforce in science and engineering fields in 2015 were female.

Forces of nature: Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer; Chien-Shiung Wu, a leading experimental physicist of the mid twentieth century; Emmy Noether, whose work in symmetry underlies much of modern physics; Annie Jump Cannon, who led the development of stellar classification systems; and Marie Skłodowska Curie, who made revolutionary contributions to physics and chemistry.]

Q-SORT  is committed to encouraging more women to pursue scientific study and creating opportunities for them to find inspiration and mentorship from established leaders.

The Q-SORT Women in Science Lecture Series is an annual event featuring leading female scientists from around the world speaking on their scientific achievements.

The first speaker of the Series is Dr. Nahid Talebi.
