She has worked in postsecondary education for over twenty years in diversity, equity, and inclusion.

As Executive Director of the National Postdoctoral Association, Dr. Huang advocated for the needs of the postdoctoral community to academe, government, industry, and funding agencies. She served on the Advisory Board for the National Science Foundation’s, “Trajectories into Early Career Research,” and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine planning committee for the “Characteristics of Effective Mentoring Relationships Among STEM Faculty and Students” workshop.
Women in STEM have myriad challenges navigating institutions and finding a pathway to career success. Research has shown women leave science because they face structural and systemic barriers, isolation, and career life/balance. The outcomes of this workshop are to create a community for women, share ideas for retention, and create an action plan for developing a successful career.
This workshop will address:
- Impostor syndrome
- Retention – juggling family and career
- Importance of mentoring
- Gender bias – racism and sexism
Space is limited and once registration is complete, a calendar invitation will be sent with location details and lunch will be provided.
This event is co-sponsored by Postdocs for Diversity in Science and the Office of Academic Training and Outreach Programs.
