Keynote Presentation: Dr. Jayshree Seth, 3M Corporate Scientist & Chief Science Advocate

Dr. Jayshree Seth


Dr. Jayshree Seth, 3M Corporate Scientist and Chief Science Advocate, will provide an overview of the 3M State of Science Index, a global survey of more than 14,000 people in 14 countries to uncover what people think of science and how they perceive its impact on their daily lives. Many of the survey findings highlight the importance of reducing real and perceived barriers to science appreciation and STEM educationin order to ensure that we have a healthy pipeline of future scientists and engineers to solve tomorrow’s challenges. Jayshree will share her personal journey as she explores ways we can advocate for science and promote STEM awareness, equity, and access for all.
