Women in Science: Opportunities

Livestream the Event Here

Inspired by its 2023 exhibition Pursuit and Persistence: 300 Years of Women in Science, the American Philosophical Society will host an international conference reflecting on the past, present, and future opportunities for women in science.

The conference will be held in-person at the Society in Philadelphia on October 6, 2023. The conference is free and open to all, but registration is required to attend.

All sessions will be livestreamed.

Those planning to attend the conference are also invited to attend the final performance of "Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight," which will be hosted at the Society on October 3-5. Performances will be held nightly at 7:00 p.m. and are free to attend. Registration and more details about these performances may be found here.
