This two-day workshop will survey notable developments in the foundations and applications of higher category theory. It will consist of two mini-courses given by emerging female leaders in the subject: Claudia Scheimbauer and Nathalie Wahl.  This will be paired with a problem sessions lead by selected "TA's", themselves experts in higher structures.  Each lecture series will be tailored to a diverse audience, accessible to graduate students and non-expert researchers with some background in homological algebra.     The majority of the speakers and panelists for this event will be women and gender minorities, and members of these groups and of other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to attend. This workshop is open to all mathematicians.
