The ESF Women's Caucus  requests recommendations (from individuals, organizations, and departments) for speakers for this coming spring.

Since its inception in 1999, this series has introduced prominent scientists, engineers, and environmental professionals (
Previous schedules & links to summaries are here) to the entire campus community, assisting women and men in all stages of their careers expand their vision of the roles of women in professional fields.  Speakers have discussed their research projects and on broader, more global issues related to their careers. Each slate has represented a diverse mix of backgrounds and affiliations to appeal to the broad spectrum of interests at ESF. Past speakers have been ESF alumnae, previous co-workers or mentors of our faculty, and ongoing role models from academia, NGOs, industry, and governmental organizations.

In addition to the campus-wide seminar, speakers meet with classes, individual undergraduate and graduate students, and discuss potential or ongoing research projects with faculty and staff. Students from the associated graduate seminar are charged with coordinating meetings during each speaker's stay. Events often serve in multiple speaker series, allowing full schedules for each, but reducing scheduling conflicts between series.


Please send the name, affiliation, field of expertise, how you know her (i.e., worked with, reputation, met at conference, etc), why she would be a good choice, and means to contact the potential speaker to Heather Engelman, engelman@syr.edu. If you have other information that would assist in the selection process add that, too!   Please provide your phone number and e-mail, too, in case we need additional information or clarification.  We also ask:  Can your organization or department contribute to travel expenses, reception, or a hotel stay? Can you suggest other groups that might be interested in co-sponsorship or cross-listing this event?


Thank you for your continued support of the Women in Scientific and Environmental Professions Speaker Series.



All presentations are free and open to the public.  Parking is available in Syracuse University's Irving Avenue Parking garage (area map; close up).  The fee is $3.50 for the first hour, $2 for each additional.
