Anne Mulcahy, Susan Trumbore, Helen Quinn, and Manijeh Razeghi are female pioneers in their own disciplines—globetrotting scientists, visionary business leaders, and universally recognized champions of their fields. Together, they make up the female class of 2018 Franklin Institute Awards recipients. Their work has transformed our world: from understanding the future of climate change to rebuilding a global company in financial crisis; from developing lasers that can detect explosives to setting the standards for teaching science to young students. With extraordinary brilliance and strength, these women are the true definition of female role models.

In a rare public setting, three of these four laureates sit down with The Franklin Institute’s chief bioscientist Jayatri Das for a discussion that promises to inspire, educate and inform current issues facing our society.

This event in The Franklin Institute Speaker Series is free and open to the public; advanced registration required. Details here: bit.ly/2pv6fzs
