Monday Minute: Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!
We’re celebrating by buckling down to finish up some things we’ve promised, and by thinking about what the New Year might bring for the Women in Planetary Science blog.
We’re commited to:
- Completing the series of 51 Women in Planetary Science. To meet the goal we set last year, we’ll need to feature 15 more women before LPSC in early March. LPSC is 8 weeks away, which means that we’ll need to feature two a week! Yikes! Who would like to volunteer to be interviewed – or to interview a professor at your university, a researcher that you’ve worked with at a NASA Center, or a colleague you went to grad school with? It would be fantastic to feature more interviews conducted by the community (hint: ask a colleague to participate, then send her five questions by email – it’s not quantum mechanics)!
- Hosting the Women’s Networking Breakfast at LPSC. NASA has agreed to sponsor the breakfast as a networking and learning event, and we’re thrilled to be able to help make this happen again. If there’s anything in particular you’d like to see happen at this event, please email us and let’s talk! It’s wide open right now, and I’m sure there’s more to do than eat!
Additionally, we’d like to:
- Find a permanent home for the 51 Women interviews where they can be accessed widely by even more members of our community, male and female – and by students considering a career in planetary science.
- Add additional authors to the blog. If you have something to say, we’d love to hear from you!
Happy New Year, and all the best to you as you move your own research and work forward!
