Former LDS General Relief Society President Julie B. Beck said, “Righteous women have changed the course of history and will continue to do so.” BYU encourages all female students to secure their own spot in history.

The College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering, College of Life Sciences, and Department of Information Systems will co-host the semi-annual Women’s Career Conversations luncheon to inspire and connect female STEM majors at BYU.

The luncheon will be on Tuesday, February 6, at 12:00 p.m. in the Garden Court of the BYU Wilkinson Student Center. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from female scientists and engineers currently working in their respective fields. The speakers will discuss the various opportunities and challenges that they have encountered in their professions.

“One of the most important purposes of a university education is to prepare men and women to be responsible and intelligent leaders and participants in the lives of their families, in their Church, and in their communities. . . . In short, we make no distinction between young men and young women in our conviction about the importance of an education and in our commitment to providing that education.” (President Dallin H. Oaks, BYU, February 12, 1974)

Because space is limited, please RSVP by Friday, Frebruary 2, to reserve a spot. All female STEM majors are invited to attend.
