Book Club

AWIS DC will be hosting a book club!

We will discuss books on Professional Development, Women in Science, and other related topics. 

Our first book will be A Lab of One’s Own: One Woman’s Personal Journey Through Sexism in Science by Dr. Rita Colwell. This book has been described as “a beautifully written memoir-manifesto from the first female director of the National Science Foundation about the entrenched sexism in science, the elaborate detours women have take to bypass the problem, and how to fix the system” (Simon & Schuster). More information about the book can be found here


Get ahead and start the book this weekend (or reserve it at the library), more info to come!
