November 10th: Women Leading Women -Mentorship
November 11th: Self- Discovery: Marketing Your Talents
November 12th: Find Your Voice: Communication & Negotiation Skills


For 7 years, Missouri Cures has been bringing people together to learn, network, and share around our WISER (Women in Science, Entrepreneurship, and Research) programs.

Like many organizations, we’ve decided to take our 2020 events virtual. We see this as an incredible opportunity to share WISER with a larger audience and by spreading our conference over 3 days, hope to make our WISER Week accessible to more people.

This year our focus is on professional development: mentorship, marketing your talents, and communication and negotiation skills. We have put together outstanding, diverse panels of women succeeding in science, business, research, and innovation to discuss these topics, how they’ve navigated them, and the challenges they’ve overcome. We hope you’ll join us via Zoom for one day or all 3 of WISER Week.

WISER Week Virtual Lunch Seminars are free, but registration is required.
