Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 12:00pm - 3:00pm

SOCk and WiO have collaborated to bring a celebration of diversity and inclusion to the college coinciding with International Women and Girls in Science Day. The celebration will take place February 10-14. The week will bring together diverse voices from both the academic and industrial Southern Arizona community to build new relationships, celebrate differences, and empower attendees to be their authentic selves. Each day of the week will have a different theme, celebrating International Women and Girls in Science Day, the LGBT community, and different cultural backgrounds. Bookending the week will be a kick-off and concluding event to celebrate how different backgrounds and experiences contribute to a vibrant optics community. Just as a prism shows all the (visible) wavelengths of the light incident upon it, Prism Week celebrates all the different people within the optics community who combine their unique perspectives to innovate the optics and photonics of tomorrow!
