The program is an hour long presentation in the AAPLIC theater with free coffee and pastries for the audience. The typical time block is a 45 minute presentation with questions filling up the rest of the time. The presentation can be hands on, informational, interpretive, etc. All we ask is that the presenters be sure to present any scientific research in a way that all members of the public can understand. Save the complexities for the questions!

Several of us are organizing a 500 Women Scientists Meet Up event as part of the Alaska Marine Science Symposium. It will be January 24th from 11:30-1. Please email elescak(at)alaska(dot)edu for more information.
Thousands have signed the 500 Women Scientists open letter. We’re creating a network of support that is larger than we could have imagined. The goals for our meet up are to give female scientists the opportunities to network within their research fields, discuss common concerns facing women in science, and brainstorm strategies to make science more accessible. This is also a chance for current and prospective members of the 500 Women Scientists community to get an update on the organization’s goals and activities and provide feedback on how the organization should focus its efforts.
We will be hosting two panels spring 2017 focused on careers in medicine and ecology/environmental science. Please email us (uaa-postdocs(at)googlegroups.com) if you are interested in more information.
