The Global Women’s Breakfast aims to assist women chemists to expand their network of contacts, both locally and internationally. During the breakfast, women of different horizons interacted and shared their experience with one another and discussed the challenges that women still face today at work. GHS Women Chemists Committee (WCC) Chair Valerie Lafitte welcomed 10 participants to the Houston event, with attendees representing undergraduate and graduate students, academia and industry. This was a successful event, and the ACS-GHS was very pleased to be part of this unique worldwide initiative.
