VIRTUAL: Eileen Pollack Speaks on Science as a Boy's Club: a collaborative event between the Women in Science at Yale and Nencki, Poland

The Women in Science at Yale (WISAY) and the Women in Science at the Nencki Institute (WISaN) in Poland have joined together to host a virtual discussion about strategies to counteract bias faced by women in STEM, and their lack of representation in the upper echelons of the academic system. For the event, we’ve invited Prof. Eileen Pollack to lead the discussion. She is one of the first two women to earn a Bachelors of Science from the Physics Department at Yale, and the author of the book “The Only Woman in the Room: Why Science Is Still a Boys’ Club”.

VIRTUAL: The Technological Fix: Presence, Absence, and the Limits of Telemedicine

Few physicians or patients have not been affected by the sudden expansion of telemedicine in the past year, which ballooned into mainstream clinical practice in 2020 as a technological patch laid over the holes in healthcare access caused by the upheaval of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet even though telemedicine may feel like an useful if uncomfortably new medium to most practitioners or patients today, the theory and practice of this “medicine at a distance” were laid out more than five decades ago.

IMPACT 2: Writing For Change: The Power of the Op-ed

Something bugs you. Excites you. Compels you to act. But how? How do you share your expertise or passion about a topic and try to change the world or, at least, the way some people think?
In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to get your voice onto the page and your ideas onto the national stage. We’ll cover the key components of great opinion essays, the best way to approach an outlet, working with an editor, and review a few attendees’ pieces. (Pieces of no more than 750 words need to be submitted by March 8 and will be selected by the workshop leader.)
