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.

Dr. Murray  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.




Dr. HuangJier 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.

Dr. ManogaranAnita 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.





October 3rd - October 6th

Picture a Scientist posterPICTURE 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.
