Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series Kickoff: Wednesday, July 29, 2015 - noon-1:00 pm 108 Capen Hall Honors College

Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series
Kickoff: Wednesday, July 29, 2015 from 12 noon to 1:00 pm
Are you hungry for empowerment? UB Women in STEM is sponsoring a brown bag, noon time lecture series that explores gender differences in STEM careers. Our featured speakers will share their insights and challenge your assumptions. Bring your lunch and a friend!

Introduction: Karen King, PhD, Program Manager, Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Partnership, University at Buffalo
Presenter: Lora Park, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology, University at Buffalo
Abstract: Women are underrepresented in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Dr. Lora Park will discuss social psychological research on the effects of romantic goal pursuit in shaping women's interest in these traditionally male-dominated fields, and discuss implications for women's motivation and performance in STEM.

This brown bag lunch lecture is hosted at UB’s Honors College, located in 108 Capen Hall, inside the Silverman Library. Admission is free and open to the public. Space is limited so advanced registration is requested. Future dates to be announced.
