Female Speaker List

Every year many excellent scientists travel to Berkeley to give seminars, talks, and colloquia. Generally speaking, finding a talk given by women can be harder to find than those given by men. Here is a list of known talks being given this semester (Spring 2018) at Berkeley in the physical sciences by female speakers. Please contact us if you know of an upcoming talk not listed below.
