Aug. 24–25, 2017: Workshop opportunity for early career female scientists and supporters
by Michelle Saport |
Are you a UA grad student, post-doc or early career scientist? A woman in science looking to improve your leadership skills, or a friend and ally of women in science who wants to help your colleagues achieve their best? If so, a workshop sponsored by the Alaska Climate Science Center (AK CSC) will be held August 24-25, 2017 in Fairbanks and organized by AK CSC graduate student fellow Joanna Young. Joanna recently returned from Antarctica, where she participated in the inaugural expedition of Homeward Bound, a unique three-week leadership program for women in science.
This workshop will combine the expertise of women in leadership at UA with elements from Homeward Bound. It will also help you to build skills to lead expeditions, science outreach & education activities or resource management & policy discussions; and to build a network among UA early career female scientists and supporters.
Registration is free and limited travel support is available. Please register by June 2, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by June 9.
