Each year at I2MTC, the Women in Instrumentation and Measurement (WIM) Panel is held. This is the 6th year we have held this important Panel at I2MTC, and Dr. Kristen Donnell will be serving as the Panel Chair. We are also fortunate to have Dr. Bozenna Pasik-Duncan as our keynote speaker this year. In the past, topics of discussion have ranged from the history and influence of women in science, mentoring, gender bias and acceptance, amongst others. We look forward to seeing men and women attend our Panel to hear Dr. Pasik-Duncan discuss her experiences. For more information about the WIM Panel, please contact Kristen at [email protected].
