Watch online: 2020 Inspiring Future Women in Science conference

Watch the live webcast beginning at 9 am ET on Monday, March 9, 2020.

A theoretical astrophysicist, who also happens to be an amazing science communicator with an upcoming book about the end of the universe. A CEO whose STEM background helps her run an automobile parts manufacturer with more than 29,000 employees spanning 17 countries. A cancer biologist studying difficult-to-treat cancers that are most prevalent in young Black women.

These are just a few of the impressive speakers set to address a crowd of nearly 200 high school students at Perimeter’s annual Inspiring Future Women in Science conference.

For the third year in a row, Perimeter will also webcast the speakers and a panel discussion of other accomplished women in STEM live from the Institute’s Mike Lazaridis Theatre of Ideas. (View talks from past years via Perimeter’s YouTube channel.)
