The Chicago Women in STEM Initiative was established in March of 2018 by Northwestern University postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to galvanize a local Chicago-area STEM community that actively promotes diversity, inclusion, and gender equity. Our third annual symposium on March 10th in 2020 attracted over 120 participants and focused on promoting the development of tomorrow’s women leaders in STEM.

During the 2020-2021 academic year, we have continued to fill the mentoring gap for local early-career women in STEM with our monthly STEM Circuits series. We are also very excited to virtually host our 4th annual Chicago Women in STEM Symposium during March 2021, coinciding with a week-long celebration of International Women's Day. This year's theme will be STANDING UP and STANDING OUT, and through this Symposium, we hope to celebrate local women in STEM, build a community of local students and professionals who are passionate about promoting the advancement of women in STEM, provide opportunities to share struggles and successes with like-minded scientists, and gain perspectives from influential invited women leaders.
