Science and Society: A Discussion of the Power of Women in Science

Join us Monday, December 3 for an evening discussion and reception celebrating female scientists who are transforming women’s lives through research. In a deeply polarizing time when science and rights are under threat, this event will explore the power and promise of women in science.

The event will feature Dr. Quarraisha Abdool Karim, professor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and Columbia University and a renowned HIV researcher and advocate, who will share her efforts to better understand the HIV epidemic and people most affected. Through research and advocacy, Dr. Karim has turned the world’s attention toward the critical need for HIV prevention strategies that are directly in the hands of women. A panel discussion with leading female scientists will follow.

This event is part of the Sheldon Segal lecture series, a collaborative effort organized by the Population Council and the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole to honor Dr. Segal, a leading authority and pioneer in the fields of family planning, reproductive and maternal health, and contraceptive technology.
