Own It strives to recognize women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at the University of Wyoming. The event and award serves to help increase the visibility of an often overlooked group in STEM, which can be fundamental in encouraging women to participate in science.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our celebration
Tuesday, February 21 at 6pm in the Wyoming Union Ball Room!
Update: We will have a kids’ corner/room during the event. This room will be in the ballroom adjacent to the event and will be staffed by volunteers and some activities. We hope this makes it easier for parents to attend this event.
