Korean-American Women in Science and Engineering (KWiSE) and Korea Federation of Women’s Science & Technology (KOFWST) cordially invite you to the Women’s Forum entitled “The Role of Women in STEM, Education, and Policy for the 4th Industrial Revolution.” This forum is open to both genders, and its goal is to exchange ideas on how to promote and empower women scientists in the various STEM fields, and to share information on education and policy needed for this process. KWiSE-KOFWST forum will provide an environment for open discussion and nurturing of partnerships and friendships. The forum is designed to be an interactive and engaging event to foster networking and mentoring among the attendees. It will be an excellent opportunity to learn and get inspiration from each other in order to allow women scientists and engineers to engage effectively as leaders and active participants in the 4th Industrial Revolution.
