The Women Scientists and Engineers Council and the Diversity and Inclusion Office will be hosting a talk by Ivy Clift entitled “Building It Together: The Berkeley Lab Foundation”.  This event will be held on Wednesday, October 14th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. in B50 Auditorium.

Talk Description: In a tight funding environment, scientists are increasingly looking to philanthropists to support their work.  Come meet Ivy Clift, President of the new Berkeley Lab Foundation, to understand what philanthropy can – and can’t – do, and what you can do to help build the lab’s base of private donors.​
