Join WiPA and the other grad women’s groups in the College of Science and Engineering for networking, free lunch, and a presentation by a female scientist. April's guest speaker is Holly Boehne, senior vice president and Chief Technology Officer of the Andersen Corporation. Holly serves on the External Advisory Board for the UMN Chemical Engineering and Materials Science department, where she has also served in the past as adjunct professor. Outside of UMN, she is involved in leadership at the Minnesota Children’s Museum and the Minnesota Science Museum.
WiPA is invited to meet with colloquium speaker Dr. Victoria Kaspi for coffee and breakfast. Her colloquium topic is “Astronomy's Newest Extragalactic Mystery: Fast Radio Bursts,” and she is also our speaker for the annual Kaufmanis Lecture next Wednesday.
WiPA invites current women grad students, postdocs, and faculty to enjoy dinner and networking together with alumnae from the graduate physics and astronomy programs.
Professor Laura McCullough will be visiting from UW-Stout to host a professional skills seminar for WiPA grad students and postdocs. Professional Skills Development Seminars are highly interactive workshops where participants will learn and practice communication and negotiation skills. The seminar will focus on the skills that women need to effectively perform research and thrive in physics, including how to:

The Women in Physics and Astronomy (WiPA) group was established to raise awareness throughout the entire school of not only the important contributions women have made and continue to make in physics and astronomy, but also about the various mechanisms that make it difficult for women to make those contributions. Planned activities raise the visibility of women within the school and encourage interactions amongst female graduate students, faculty and/or research associates. It is hoped that the Women in Physics and Astronomy group will encourage a respectful climate for women in the school.
