Lineup for Rising to the Challenge

Rising to the Challenge: Finding and Starting a New Job during COVID-19
6:00PM-7:00PM EDT
Zoom Registration

Finding and starting a new job is more challenging than ever. From virtual interviews to working remotely, the pandemic is adding another layer to the transition from school to work. The good news for our current job seekers is that our Tandon Class of 2020 has already faced this challenge head-on. Join a few of our Tandon Class of 2020 alumni to talk about how they are rising to the challenge of searching for and starting a new job during the pandemic!

Lineup for Surviving to Thriving

From Surviving to Thriving: Wellness & Success in STEM
6:00-7:00PM EDT
Zoom Registration

2020 was hard. But our panelists not only survived through it, they thrived - integrating wellness techniques into their work from home routines. In STEM, we usually talk about success in terms of data and deliverables, but the missing piece is often focusing on our own wellness and how it contributes to overall success more than we ever discuss or acknowledge. Join NYU Tandon alumni as they talk about their journeys through 2020 and other tumultuous times, and how important wellness has been to their personal and professional triumphs.

Keynote Participants of Women in STEM summit

Keynote Panel: Embodying Resilience
Thursday, March 4, 2021
7:00-8:30PM EDT
Zoom Registration

What better way to end a week centered around the theme "Heal Together, Rise Together" than by discussing the importance of resilience?

Our final event of this year's Womxn in STEM Summit will be a panel discussion centered on how current events (politics/law, the Black Lives Matter movement, the COVID-19 pandemic, etc.) have affected our personal and professional lives. Panelists will talk about their personal work responses as well as how their company, organization, and/or institution has responded. Panelists will also discuss how womxn, particularly womxn in STEM, can heal and rise from these struggles. They will share personal and professional strategies they have learned and developed that help them embody resilience and how you can adapt them for your own life.
