The Caltech & JPL Community is invited to our workshop series highlighting a variety of topics chosen to encourage cultural intelligence, engage critical discourse and provide an inclusive space for the exploration of diverse identities, thoughts and interests.

Graduate student Ana Lobo also has started a non-profit. The non-profit aims to provide accessible educational programs to encourage women to pursue careers in STEM, especially in developing countries. Together we will discuss the barriers girls face, many of which occur in some form from high school all the way to the grad level. How do we make science a meritocracy for everyone and not just for those born into advantageous circumstances?


Presenter: Ana Lobo, Graduate student in Planetary Sciences
