Hello fellow females in STEM!

We hope you had an enjoyable summer! As some of you may know, WISTEM is a group of female faculty members in STEM, here at NIU, who meet to network and discuss important issues. We are interested in kick-starting a group for undergraduate students and graduate students in STEM who may meet informally once per month to do the same. We would like to touch base with everyone as we have several potential events planned for this coming school year, such as inviting female scientists to speak at a colloquium.

We were hoping to meet for coffee on Friday, September 11th, at 2 pm in Founder's Cafe in the basement of the library, to discuss these ideas and get to know each other a little better.

If you cannot make the meeting but are interested in attending, please contact us using the emails listed below.

We hope to see you there!
