Science Careers in Search of Women 2010

On Thursday, April 22, 2010, Argonne National Laboratory conducted the 23rd "Science Careers in Search of Women" Conference. The Conference once again focused on exploring opportunities and options for women choosing careers in science and technology.

Women continue to be underrepresented in science and technology. Research shows that girls and young women lose interest in subjects and fields of study leading to scientific and technical careers long before they enter college. The Science Careers in Search of Women Conference was conceived to reach out and engage high school women and encourage them to consider careers in science and technology.

The SCSW 2010 conference was held at Argonne National Laboratory and it is intended for an audience of High School students enrolled and/or interested in a science or mathematics curriculum.

The Nuclear Engineering Division participated in the career booth expo for the conference with a booth on careers in nuclear science and technology. Careers in nuclear science and technology touch almost every aspect of our lives, from generation of electricity to nuclear medicine to industrial processes. This booth described the various career opportunities available in nuclear science and technology and the types of high school and college courses needed to prepare for such careers. A variety of handouts were available which discussed these career opportunities.

Thanks to all participants!

AwardDOE EEO/Diversity Award
Science Careers in Search of Women has won a U.S. Department of Energy EEO/Diversity Award for its contribution to Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity.
