May 20 and 21, 2014 at the National Center for Women in Technology Summit in San Diego, CA, members of the Academic Alliance will develop their ability to address situations that can otherwise reinforce racial and gender inequities, and hostile environments.

March 21 and 24th, improvscience returns to Boston University to work with graduate students nearing completion in the Bioinformatics Program. After the graduate students participated in an Improvisation for STEM Professionals workshop in their annual retreat, they wanted more.

One of my frequent activities is providing mentoring workshops for women and minorities in science. This includes my online webinar for the Empowering Leadership Alliance (ELA) led by Richard Tapia of Rice University. ELA introduces women and minorities in computing, math and sciences to computational science and high performance computing.

Holmes and Anderson return to the Communication of Science Course in the Systems Biology Program at Harvard University.  Once professional presentation slides are created and the talk outlined or scripted, what do you do? You perform. Galit Lahav leads the presentations component of this course that brought improvscience in 2012 and 2013 to work these first year students.
