Join in an evening of conversation and discovery with Shirley Ann Jackson, "perhaps the ultimate role model for women in science" according to TIME Magazine. Dr. Jackson is the President of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the first African-American woman to receive a doctorate from MIT, and a 2014 National Medal of Science Laureate. This event is open to the public with priority given to Howard University students and faculty. Register early.
The event will be webcast live, and online audience members can join the conversation using #AnEveningWith. A recording of the full event video will be available afterward on the National Science and Technology Medals Foundation website.
The conversation will be led by Howard University President Wayne Frederick. A distinguished researcher and surgeon, Dr. Frederick has led Howard University, his alma mater, since 2014. The National Science and Technology Medals Foundation is hosting this event.
