Panel discussion on women in Science and Technology – UNB, May 9 April 30, 2014

Posted by Jane Fritz in Uncategorized.

You are invited to join the discussion.

When: May 9, 10 a.m. – noon

Where: Head Hall (the Gillin Hall part of the engineering complex), Room C11 (enter from campus side or from Windsor Street entrance)

What: Panel and full group discussion


“All is well with women in science—or is it?” asks Prof. Geoff Rayner-Canhem, professor of chemistry at MUN (Grenfell Campus) who teaches Women in Science and, together with his partner Marlene Rayner-Canham, has published several books about the work of forgotten women scientists.

Geoff is joined by professional engineer Christine Plourde, President of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of NB, who is actively involved in a national effort to increase the proportion of women members in the profession.

Building a bridge (metaphorically) between the academy and the STEM work world is sociologist Dr. Lori Leach, who is an occasional lecturer in UNB’s Gender and Women’s Studies Interdisciplinary Program, researches women in computer science in particular, and promotes women in trades and technology.

The event will be moderated by Prof. Frank Collins of UNB’s Engineering Faculty and Prof. Wendy Robbins of UNB’s Gender and Women’s Studies program.
