Please join ADVANCE Project TRACS as we present our three distinguished women in STEM from MSU. Dr. Joan Broderick is a Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry who was recently awarded the Women in Science Distinguished Professor Award. Celia O'Connor is an MSU Mathematics Alumna who continues to give back to the University by sitting on the President's Commission on the Status of University Women and serving the community through Mathematics tutoring. Julie Workman is a graduate student in Materials Science who is working to expand the field of multi-functional composite materials by studying how to engineer functionalized graphene for structural and electronic improvements in polymer-matrix composites. Finally, Jenna Pinto is an Undergraduate student in Cell Biology and Neuroscience who also serves her community by serving as an active member of the Chi Omega Women's Fraternity, a member of Mortar Board and was just elected as the new President of the Order of Omega Greek Honors Society. The four members of the panel will talk about the role of women in STEM - then and now - inside of the classroom and in the community.
