We are excited to announce the 2013 Women in Science and Technology (WIST) Conference.
Date: Saturday, May 18, 2013
Time: 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Location: UCSD Faculty Club on the campus of UCSD.
This year’s WIST Conference theme is Aspire Attain Ascend. We will celebrate AWIS-SD’s 30th anniversary in 2013.
What is the WIST conference?
- A one-day symposium focusing on career and personal development, as well as peer networking
As we enter a new decade now is the opportunity to make positive changes in our careers and lives.
Past workshop topics have been as diverse as networking, negotiation, and effective job search strategies to the business of science, end-to-end drug development and bioinformatics to research and teaching in the academic setting.
Thank you to all attendees and volunteers of the WIST2011 conference, it was a fantastic event.
