Participate in a Focus Group at AGU!

Are you concerned about sexual harassment in STEM?

You are invited to participate in a focus group as part of a National Science Foundation ADVANCE award to develop bystander intervention and research ethics training to improve work climate conditions in the earth and space sciences by preventing sexual and other types of harassment in the classroom, lab and field. We want to hear from people with diverse backgrounds.

You can volunteer to participate by coming to one of our 4 focus groups:

Monday, December 11th  1) 10:40-Noon or 2) 1:00-2:20 pm

Getting your science out into the public domain!

Are you interested in engaging the public with science?

Have you been asked by funding agencies to communicate your research directly to public audiences?

Do you want to feel more comfortable talking about science with a variety of audiences?

Interested in what sort of careers exist in science communication?

The Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), with support from George Mason University, are partnering together to offer a workshop for early career Earth scientists on how to effectively communicate science to the public, media, and policymakers alike. Contrary to popular belief, communication is typically an acquired skill. At this one-day workshop, Earth scientists will have the opportunity to learn tactics from professional science communicators, and practice communicating science through a series of activities. You will leave the workshop with concrete tools and strategies to effectively bring your science out into the public domain.

When is this awesome training happening? Wednesday, July 12th from 9 to 5:30 PM 

Where? George Mason University – Arlington Campus, 3351 Fairfax Dr., room 111-113, Arlington, VA
