Panel: AWM Goes to Washington - Our Capitol Hill Day visit

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm


Lauren Crider, Mela Hardin, Sara Sami Jamous, Miandra Ellis
Arizona State University



Four ASU math graduate students traveled to Washington DC in January to participate in the Association for Women in Math (AWM) Capitol Hill Day. In this panel discussion, students Lauren Crider, Mela Hardin, Sara Sami Jamous, and Miandra Ellis will share their stories, talk about being part of such an energized group of women, and reflect on their experiences interacting with our elected representatives.

The AWM Capitol Hill Day brings together students and mathematicians from across academia, industry, and government to highlight issues of importance for women and minorities in STEM fields to our Congressional representatives. In small groups that include both students and professional mathematicians, participants got to meet with Congressional staff -- and sometimes members of Congress -- to discuss initiatives that impact our community.

Join us for this special panel discussion!
