Seattle AWIS – Virtual Banquet Celebration of Award Recipients: Dr. Sheri Tonn and Dr. Karen Peterson
Join us for a virtual celebration honoring the achievements of our 2020-2021 award recipients!
Because of Covid-19 restrictions, we are not able to host our June 2021 banquet but we can still bring our community together to celebrate and acknowledge the many accomplishments of our award recipients.
These will not be run-of-the-mill Zoom webinars. Hear their inspiring stories about their education and career paths, what motivated them to enter STEM fields and what challenges and rewards they encounter today. Plus the evenings will include a toast to women in STEM, a look back at previous banquets, raffle drawings, and mementos of the evening for attendees.
