“For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.” -Virginia Woolf

It’s time for us to stop being anonymous. Graduate Women at MIT is hosting our annual Spring Empowerment Conference April 10-14, 2017! This year, the theme is “Be Bold, Be Heard”, and we’ll be hosting events centered around helping you find and amplify your unique voice. Whether that’s about improving your written communication, learning the best way to handle confrontations or tricky conversations, or becoming more politically involved – the world needs your voice, and we want to hear it.

Panel 1


GWAMIT started our annual Empowerment Conference in 2010 to celebrate and advance the empowerment of graduate women at MIT, and everyone in our community. This year, our theme is about making your voice heard. From politics to science writing, speaking up, being heard, and communicating effectively is one of the most scary and most important things you can do. Join us for speakers, workshops, and fun events the week of April 10-14, 2017.

This year, our conference committee includes Allena Goren, Molly Bird, Nicole Aponte, Debbie Ajilo, Kaitlyn Dwelle, Whitney Hess, Amanda Kedaigle, Emily Lindemer, Dina Tsukrov and our other great collaborators at POWER and BGSA.
