The S.H.E. Talks – Sharing Human Experiences seminar series offers a chance to be inspired and receive mentorship from established female professionals of all disciplines by hearing about their experiences. While the focus is on their careers, the speakers shape the style of the seminar by also sharing personal life stories of their families, mistakes, accomplishments, struggles, successes, and failures. The seminars are enriched with take-home messages, reflection points, and ways to move forward.

Our speakers are women, but the audience is all-inclusive. We cannot ignore our differences, but we can use our differences as a strength to build a just and equal future for all.

The One Health Center is proud to introduce the S.H.E. IS blog, an activity under the S.H.E. Talks program. 

Traditional histories of science focus on discoveries and inventions, almost invariably made by men who were elevated to the status of great heroes. What about women and science? As women were excluded from universities, scholarly societies and laboratories, they could not make the same contributions towards science as men. Yet, without women, science would have developed very differently.

In this blog, we will explore some of the most influential and pioneering studies of women in the sciences, with a special focus on patterns of education, access, barriers, and opportunities for women’s work in science. Spanning the Ancient World through the 20th centuries, we will cover the ideas, discoveries, and insights of women scientists who made changes to the way we see the world.

By highlighting women in science, we aim to present more female role models for future generations. View our most recent entries below!

In addition to these activities, S.H.E. Talks also shares the stories of powerful women of today and yesterday on social media through #WhoIsSHE. These women have, or currently are, taking on the world's biggest problems. From fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, to putting humans on the moon, the scientific world wouldn't be the same without their contributions.
