Female STEM Students Gathering for Women’s Career Conversations

Former LDS General Relief Society President Julie B. Beck said, “Righteous women have changed the course of history and will continue to do so.” BYU encourages all female students to secure their own spot in history.

The College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering, College of Life Sciences, and Department of Information Systems will co-host the semi-annual Women’s Career Conversations luncheon to inspire and connect female STEM majors at BYU.

The luncheon will be on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, at 12:00 p.m. in the Garden Court of the BYU Wilkinson Student Center. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from female scientists and engineers currently working in their respective fields. The speakers will discuss the various opportunities and challenges that they have encountered in their professions.

“When you’re insecure or you doubt yourself, it prevents you from really being successful,” former panelist Emily Judd previously advised students. “As long as you stay true to who you are, you’re going to be comfortable, even if you’re outside a comfortable situation.”

This year the panel members include Ford Motor Company Engineer Emily Lazalde, biology professor Dr. Julianne Grose, Salt Lake City School District Science Administrator Candace Penrod, and ExxonMobil IT Data Strategist Heidi Larsen. Click here to view their bios.

Because space is limited, please RSVP by Friday, September 15, to reserve a spot. All female STEM majors are invited to attend.
