American Chemical Society Women in Chemistry (ACS WiC) is the Women Chemists Committee of the Michigan State University ACS Local Section. We host monthly brown bag lunches, professional development workshops, and networking events. While we celebrate, support, and empower female chemists, our events and discussions are relevant to chemists regardless of gender, and all individuals are welcome to join us.
As a scientist and scholar, you need to present your work to a variety of audiences. We offer opportunities to practice explaining your work in a way that your family and your committee will understand.
It's intimidating to promote yourself or talk to someone you admire. It's also necessary for representing your contributions and advancing your career. Get your feet wet at one of our networking events.
Graduate school is stressful, but you have a community of friends to support you as you work towards your degree. Don't go it alone, we can connect you with resources to help you succeed.
Are you nervous about presenting at your group meeting? Preparing to go to a conference or give a seminar soon? Join us on the 3rd Wednesday of every month for the opportunity to practice presenting and asking questions.
Female chemists are still facing unique challenges in the workforce. We celebrate and advocate for women in the department and in the field of chemistry.
