Part of Wonder Women Wednesdays

Join us for a panel of women in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields.  Our panel will touch upon a range of topics from their  journeys and strategies for  sustaining oneself in a male dominated field.
  • Shaila Kotadia, Ph.D.
    Education, Outreach, & Diversity Manager, Synthetic Biology Engineering Research Center (Synberc)

    At Synberc, Shaila directs numerous programs at the pre-college through postdoctoral levels. Her strong interest in promoting diversity within STEM fields is reflected in her stewardship of programs such as the Introductory College Level Experience in Microbiology (iCLEM) program and this Expanding Potential Workshop, and her participation in the “Women in Science” series featured on In Other Words Montana Public Radio. Dr. Kotadia received her Ph.D. in genetics and development from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Her postdoctoral work at the University of California, Santa Cruz focused on cell division and chromosome segregation.

Since then I have been working to create inclusive learning environments through my work as a science curriculum developer and researcher currently working on a redesigned section of Chem1A.
  • Clare Stinchcombe
    Graduate Student, Department of Mathematics, UC Berkeley

    She currently teaches undergrads there; in the past, she’s also taught elementary- and middle-school students at the Center for Talent Development, high-school students in Chicago Public Schools, and college students at San Quentin State Prison.Her math research interests are in inner model theory and large cardinals. Her educational research interests are in the integration of digital and classroom instruction, and in feedback and quality measurement in instructional design .
Wonder Women Wednesdays is a series on women’s empowerment and healing.  This event is all about creating a space for women to receive mentorship, advice and inspiration from fellow women.  We welcome all who experience life through the lens of woman in body, spirit, identity – past, present, future, and fluid.
