At The Adler | Women In Space

The annual Women in Space Science Award recognizes women who have made significant contributions to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math with the goal of inspiring young women to pursue careers in these disciplines.

The celebration features a luncheon reception for event attendees and a keynote presentation given by this year's honoree.

The highlight of the event is an afternoon program immediately following the luncheon. Approximately 250 young women from Chicago-area public schools will participate in an afternoon program of engaging STEM workshops.

The 2016 award luncheon will be held at the Drake Hotel on Thursday, May 12, at 11:30 a.m.

The Women in Space Science Award Celebration raises funds to support the Adler's STEM education program including Girls Do Hack and Girls' Technology Camp.

The Adler is pleased to present the 2016 Women In Space Science award to Professor Wendy L. Freedman.

Freedman is a Canadian-American astronomer best known for her measurement of the Hubble Constant.

Her principle research interests are in observational cosmology, measuring the current and past expansion rates of the universe, and on characterizing dark energy - the mysterious force that causes the universe to accelerate its expansion.

Freedman is the John & Marion Sullivan University Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at The University of Chicago.
