Flyer for event with Dr. Bethann McLaughlin

As you may have heard, Dr. Bethann McLaughlin, Assistant Professor of Neuobiology and Pharmacology at Vanderbilt University and founder of #MeTooSTEM, is visiting UW in April to give a science talk and participate in several events related to #MeTooSTEM and Sexual Harassment. Both Science and Inside Higher Education have recently covered some of her story. She also has a #MeTooSTEM website.

UW ADVANCE is one of many sponsors of her visit. You might be interested in some of the upcoming #MeTooSTEM-related events. A summary of those events appears below.
