"Governor Markell's and DEDO's significant support of DESCA is a major milestone that signals that this is not just the enthusiasm of a small group of researchers or a few companies, but an entity that is worthy and deserving of public support, private engagement and of robust support from a wide range of participants." U.S. Senator Chris Coons at DESCA's March 2012 Summit. For more information on results of the Summit, please click here.

    Go Ahead...Brag!

    Featured Speaker:

    Judith Giordan

    A successful STEM career is not only about doing great science – it is also about convincing and sharing with others why it is important and why we are the ones capable of doing it!

    One way women can become successful STEM leaders is through bragging. But bragging gets a bad rap. Shouldn’t we be modest and let the
    work speak for itself or let others brag about us? NO - bragging is not the problem, being comfortable doing it is the challenge.

    Dr. Judy Giordan will share some of her tips as a woman in STEM on how to stand up and proudly declare your achievements. Learn how to take charge of your confidence and find ways to brag that fit your style and still share the facts. Communicate your accomplishments with pride and enthusiasm, in other words, go ahead...brag!
