Men Allies for Gender Equity Workshop
February 18th, 10AM-12PM or 1PM-3PM
Dr. Roger Green (Electrical and Computer Engineering, North Dakota State University) will lead these two interactive workshop sessions, which will encourage and equip men to serve as effective allies for gender equity in STEM settings. The workshop is structured as an interactive conversation with opportunities to learn, ask questions, and practice skills through scenario-based exercises. The Men Allies for Gender Equity workshop utilizes a men-only format, which helps promote candid discussions and safe conversation spaces for the target male audience.
Panel Discussion: "What would an ideal family-friendly higher-ed institution look like?"
February 12th, 12PM-1PM
Invited panelists include university leaders both from within and outside Marquette:

Panel Discussion: PICTURE A SCIENTIST
October 6th, 3:30 PM
After the viewing period ends there will be a panel discussion on Teams Live on October 6 at 3:30 pm, featuring several Marquette researchers and hosted by Dr. Heidi Bostic, Dean of the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences.
Allison Murray, PhD
Dr. Allison Murray is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering in Marquette’s Opus College of Engineering. She received her PhD in mechanical engineering from Purdue University in 2019. Her research focuses on additive manufacturing with a specific interest in dynamic characterization methods for 3D printed components. She also investigates broadening the participation of underrepresented groups in engineering education.
Jier Huang, PhD
Professor Huang received her B.S. degree in Chemistry from Lanzhou University (China) in 2001, an M.S. degree in Analytical Chemistry from Lanzhou in 2004, and her Ph.D. degree from Emory University in 2010. Her interests in biomimetic photosynthetic and photovoltaic materials led her to postdoctoral research at Argonne National Laboratory. She joins the faculty at Marquette as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2013 and promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2019. The research in Dr. Huang’s group is focused on the development of cutting edge materials for various chemical reactions and applications in sustainable energy source. The research program in her group is funded by National Science Foundation and Department of Energy.
Anita Manogaran, PhD
Dr. Manogaran is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Marquette University. She received her Ph.D. from Marquette University, and worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her research focuses on understanding the cellular mechanisms underlying protein misfolding disorders, such as Prion disease and Transthyretin Amyloidosis. Dr. Manogaran credits her success in science to persistence and strong women mentors.
Film Screening: PICTURE A SCIENTIST
October 3rd - October 6th
PICTURE A SCIENTIST is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
