Successfully navigating today's workplace involves balancing responsibilities for our families, our jobs, and the multiple roles we participate in as we mentor and outreach to the wider community, all of which compete for our time and talents.


In honor of Women's History Month, the NIEHS Spirit Lecture series recognizes outstanding women who have achieved this balance in their lives. By sharing their experiences with the community they will inspire us to achieve a balance between the competing aspects of our lives, thereby becoming better scientists and better members of our families and our communities. A reception will follow.
