Intersectionality in STEM: Supporting All Voices.
Researchers have long been studying the various reason why women are underrepresented in the STEM fields. This conference aims to not just address some of these reasons, but give our students, faculty, and staff the understanding and tools to help them succeed in their careers of choice.
This year we have two featured keynote speakers: Dr. Renee Horton, a Material Science Engineer with NASA, and Dr. Karissa Sanbonmatsu, a Principle Investigator at Los Alamos National Laboratory and specialist in the mechanisms of ribosomes, riboswitches, and LncRNAs. 
Dr. Horton is the first African American – and first in her family – to earn a doctorate in Material Science from the University of Alabama. You can learn more about her by visiting her website. In addition to her research, Dr. Sanbonmatsu discusses how her gender transition led her down the path to studying epigenetics -- how social interactions alter DNA. You can learn more about her work by visiting her website as well.
