Women in Science Respond to Lab Girl: A Panel Discussion

Gumberg Library invites you to Women in Science Respond to Lab Girl, a panel discussion focusing on the themes found in Hope Jahren’s celebrated 2016 memoir. This conversation will feature Duquesne faculty members and alumni sharing their insights and experiences as women working in the sciences.

 

Lab Girl documents Jahren’s successes and sacrifices as she navigates financial instability, mental illness, and a field traditionally dominated by men.

Panelists will also offer advice for women pursuing careers in science.
