UW Allen School Women's Research Day
12:30 - 3:00pm, April 23 (Friday), 2021
Online Event, link will be distributed by email.

The goal of the Allen School Women's Research Day event is to celebrate women and nonbinary people in research at the Allen School and in the greater Seattle area with a day of research talks, panels, and posters. We will have short research talks, a poster session of student presentations, and a Q&A session with the director of the Allen School. We will also be releasing recordings of the event as well as other prerecorded research talks to the Allen School YouTube channel after the event!

We keep the name of Women's Research Day to honor the history of the event for the time being, though we are hoping to transit to more inclusive and diverse forms!
