Each speaker will post on the blog and students will be able to ask questions in the comment section of the blog. This event aims to highlight women in STEM and will focus on how Covid-19 has affected the workplace, allowing students to get a real idea of how industry professions deal with challenge and change. The blog will launch on November 2nd, 2020 and will run throughout the week until November 6th, 2020. Students can ask questions Monday to Wednesday and see answers by Friday!
