Global Women’s Breakfast @Brockport

DON’T FORGET! Stop by the Smith Lounge (if you happen to be on the Brockport Campus) Tuesday the 12th at 8:30 AM for breakfast and networking. Bring along your friends and be sure to post to your social media sites #GlobalBreakfast #IUPAC100 #ACS.

On February 12th, 2019, we’ll be hosting a Breakfast honoring women in Chemistry. During the breakfast, we’ll have time to talk about the women who have won nobel prizes in Chemistry and – in honor of the 150th anniversary of the periodic table – the women who are credited with discovering elements.

Want to know more about what this event is and why it’s important? See this editorial by Marcy Towns in the Journal of Chemical Education. (I’m not sure if it is behind a paywall.)

This event is part of IUPAC’s Global Networking Event. The College at Brockport’s Chemistry Club is the 100th group (in Periodic Table numbering, we are Fm – fermium) to host an event. We want the day to be inclusive, so our focus is on learning about some key women in the history of chemistry and all are invited. More details will be posted here as needed.

Brockport is on the map!
