Protecting the environment is always an integral part of the work being done at MMM. Seizing an opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise in this area, MMM’s Kim LeBrun, Biologist, recently co-hosted a “Women in Biology” social and networking event at the Ashburnham Ale House in Peterborough for the Ontario Chapter of the American Fisheries Society.
As part of the mentoring panel, Kim and co-hosts fielded questions from attendees using their expertise and knowledge gained from their various career choices and life experiences.
The gathering brought women and men from all stages of careers and science occupations to provide guidance and support to younger scientists. Due to the positive feedback and attendance, Kim is planning another gathering for south-western Ontario early in the New Year.
