The 2018 Women in Innovation and Technology (WIT) symposium will be held Feb. 27 at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy.
Four years ago, the Office of Technology Management (OTM) at Washington University in St. Louis began the WIT program to address the persistent underrepresentation of women in the inventor/commercialization process.
WIT assists female faculty at Washington University as they navigate the commercialization process while also introducing them to various resources within the local community.
2018 symposium highlights:
- Lunch and keynote speaker: Michele Marcolongo, department head and professor of materials science and engineering, Drexel University
- Panel I: “Making Time for Tech Transfer Amongst Career Development”
- Panel II: “Best Practices for Increasing Your Network”
- Networking happy hour
