Redefining the Landscape: Women in STEM

Women In STEM exhibit portraits with green and pink geometric background

Redefining the Landscape: Women in STEM highlighted a number of women learning, teaching, and researching at the University of Chicago PSD and PME. The exhibition and book displayed profiles of female scientists who span many generations and represent a diversity of programs and interests. They opted to recount pivotal moments, challenges surmounted, and proudest accomplishments. Embedded in their narratives are paths forged through persistence and determination.

This exhibition was on view in the ERC atrium and online Spring 2020. View event photos from the opening reception
