The Russell Women in Science Lecture Series at Mills College is an annual event featuring leading female scientists from around the country speaking on topics of global impact. These lectures introduce students and the general public to key scientific issues while highlighting the career opportunities available to young women in the sciences. Students who are part of the Russell Women in Science Leadership Program organize and manage the event while all Mills STEM students have the opportunity to spend one-on-one time learning from inspiring role models before and after the public lectures. All Mills students and community members are welcome to attend the lectures.
