Rosalind Franklin Society In Action

The eminent Board and Advisory Board meet annually to discuss our successes, priority areas, and initiatives for the coming year. Alongside invited special guests, we host a variety of speakers and panels that address the role of women in science, across disciplines and organizational sectors, with regard to the social and structural influences on career paths, patterns, and accomplishments.
