In 2014, a small group of dedicated women in STEM fields at the University at Buffalo came together to raise awareness and promote the visibility of women in STEM. After a spring 2014 event and fall 2014 Tweetathon, this group has continued its mission and is proud to offer the Women in STEM Summit.
