Advocating for and mentoring women in STEM (and International Women's Day!)
We’re coming up on International Women’s Day on March 8 and here at INFORMS we’re excited to recognized and celebrate the incredible contributions of women in STEM! This year’s theme is Embrace Equity, highlighting how embracing gender equity will help create an inclusive world. Joining me to explore the growing impact of women in the STEM fields, and share her own incredible work is Lauren Czerniak, a PhD candidate with the University of Michigan. Lauren’s research focuses on developing and applying stochastic models to address current challenges in healthcare with applications in pharmaceutical drugs, glaucoma, and concussion management. In addition to her incredible work in industrial and operations engineering, Lauren as she is a tremendous advocate and mentor for other women in STEM.
