Two very accomplished young women who are awardees of National AAUW fellowships will tell us about themselves and their work at the Interbranch Council luncheon on Saturday, January 28, 2017.
Gina Turco, who was awarded an American Fellowship, is a systems biologist using mathematical models to develop higher biomass plants. She has also been involved in organizations like Girls Who Code and Skate Like a Girl.
Cloe-Mai Le Gall-Scoville, also an American Fellowship awardee, specializes in 19th century French and English literature. Her dissertation addresses how women of color, mixed-race women and Creole women are represented in romantic, naturalistic and realistic texts.
The luncheon will be held at Plates Café, 14 Business Park Way, Building 149, Sacramento, beginning at 11:30 am. Reservations and checks are due by January 18, 2017, but it would be good if you would send them right away, since our reservation chair will be away on family business from January 11 to the 21. Please use this reservation form.
The cost is $30 per person, with checks made payable to AAUW Interbranch Council, should be sent to Barbara Durst, 874 Purdue Drive, Woodland, CA 95695. (Please note that reserving and paying by credit card on Eventbrite is not an option for this event.) The cost includes honoraria to the two speakers, plus mileage reimbursement, in appreciation of their taking the time to come and speak to us.
We encourage you to invite guests to this event, especially young women who may be inspired by our speakers!
