Anthropology Students Attend Women in STEM Conference

Four anthropology student majors attended the Public Leadership Education Network’s (PLEN) Women in STEM Policy Seminar in Washington, D.C., which took place Jan. 2 to Jan. 6, 2018.

Elena Brzozowski ’18 of Oneonta, New York, Vina Smith-Ramakrishnan ’18 of Whitesboro, New York, Haley O'Brien ’18 of Cazenovia, New York, and Kylie Clancy ’20 of Glastonbury, Connecticut, attended the seminar.

The seminar offered college women a valuable opportunity to hear firsthand from women in science, health, and technology who are shaping the nation’s STEM agenda. Students connected with senior women in the public, nonprofit and private sectors.

Vina won the MVP award for the mock testimony she delivered during a Congressional hearing simulation. She represented the Environmental Protection Agency.
