Women and DEI: A Fire Talk

The Department of Geology, in partnership with KAWSE, is bringing Maria Angela Capello, MS (MAC), a renowned leader in the energy sector, a relentless fighter for sustainability and equity across the industry, and an active collaborator for the United Nations, to the Manhattan campus. Her work has been recognized by the Italian government through the Star of Italy honor (knighthood), and by the UNESCO endorsing her work leading the "Geosciences Sustainable Development Atlas" to advance the Sustainable Development Goals across the Geosciences.

MAC will lead the workshop “Women and DEI: A Fire-Talk” where she will discuss gaps, opportunities and tips for Women in STEM careers, including highlights of her own resilience and incursion in DEI topics. She will share how to overcome the natural hurdle of being a member of an underrepresented group pertinent to participation, meetings, courage, leadership, mentoring, sponsoring, attitude, and support. This will be followed by an exercise on networking for women’s empowerment. 

Attendees will have the option to participate in-person or virtually. Coffee and pastries will be available to in-person attendees. RSVP here.
