Countdown to LPSC: Women’s Networking Breakfast
The scientists behind this blog are pleased to announce the third annual Women’s Networking Breakfast at this year’s Lunar and Planetary Science Conference. The breakfast program will begin at 7:30 Tuesday morning in Montgomery Ballroom C at the conference hotel. All women and those who are invested in women’s success are welcome to attend. The breakfast will feature a short welcome, a time for all attendees to make community announcements (bring your job prospects and your questions), and focused tabletop discussions about the most pressing issues in the field, as identified by you.
To aid us in planning, if you have a topic you’d like to discuss, please leave a comment here on the blog or send it to us for integration with the other topics — you won’t be identified or asked to speak about the topic. Ideas may include job transitions, working on planetary science missions, becoming a co-investigator or participating scientist, work-life balance, soft money – the perks and pitfalls, flexible work, promotions, starting a seminar series at your institution, being a researcher at a teaching college … the list is up to you. What do you want to discuss?
RSVPs are encouraged but not required via email.
