Kudos to Associate Professor Elissa Schwartz who has been awarded funding for this coming summer from the Douglas J. Epperson Social Justice Fund from the WSU Center for Arts and Humanities for her proposed work on remedying the “Leaky Pipeline” of women in STEM. Her plan includes development of a workshop and forum to connect underrepresented trainees from WSU and abroad (particularly Africa) with professional development opportunities. This joint venture leverages the interdisciplinary faculty of the WSU Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, faculty and researchers at WSU with expertise in mathematics and science, and the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences.
