Pitt AWM Student Seminar Series

Starting in 2021, the University of Pittsburgh AWM Chapter hosts the Pitt AWM Student Seminar Series, held on the first Fridays of each month at 4:45pm. Every meeting features two 30 minute long talks by female PhD students, each presenting the speaker's research outcomes. Our seminar is hoped to give a platform to female students-researchers, to promote the spirit of collegiality and collaboration, and to recognize the hard work of students during this pandemic time.

 

Talks are video-recorded and made available on our Youtube Channel (subject to each speaker's permission).

If you wish to give a talk, please reach out to Farjana Siddiqua at: fas41@pitt.edu

Seminars are held virtually on Zoom. Meeting id: 96524480571. Password: awmpitt.
