BYU hosts Women's Career Symposium Jan. 22

Women's Services and Resources at Brigham Young University will sponsor the Women's Career Symposium Wednesday (Jan. 22) at 5 p.m. in 3228 Wilkinson Student Center.

Speakers Ruth Todd, news anchor at KTVX News, and Kerry Hammock, academic and career advisor for the Counseling and Career Center, will focus not on what careers women should choose, but on how to handle issues women face in their career choices. They will also highlight how education plays a part in those choices.

Ruth Todd's speech, "Wife, Mother, News Anchor," will analyze the balance between family and work responsibilities. Kerry Hammock will discuss issues not commonly considered on the topic of women's careers. He will also explain the value of education for reasons other than career advancement.

The symposium, which will last about two hours, is free of charge and all are invited to attend. For more information, please call Tenley at (801) 422-4877.

The cloth masks many are sporting these days offer some protection against COVID-19. However, they typically provide much less than the professional N95 masks used by healthcare workers. That may soon change. Recently, students from BYU’s College of Engineering teamed up with Nanos Foundation to develop a nanofiber membrane that can be sandwiched between the cloth pieces in a homemade mask, increasing efficacy up to 99%.
