Women in Planetary Science Lunch at DPS 2013 – Register by Sept. 15
Announcing the 2013 DPS Women in Planetary Science Lunch!
Join us for an informal meeting and discussion hour over lunch at the Division of Planetary Sciences Meeting in Denver, CO. This year’s overall topic will be leadership. We will have a brief presentation, but are planning for a very interactive program with lots of time for discussion among participants. Please feel free to bring any information/announcements related to women in astronomy and planetary science to share. Due to the generosity of the DPS committee, we will be able to provide boxed lunches this year. All are welcome!
RSVPs are requested due to space limitations and for planning the lunch order.
Important: I have just been alerted that the catering order needs to be placed by Sept. 15th, so please RSVP if you think you might attend, and please pass this invite on to interested persons! http://bit.ly/WIA_2013

New this year! Invite a friend or colleague who has never been to a WIPS lunch but might be interested to come with you. We are hoping this will make a wider crowd feel welcome attending. Most of the topics we discuss are of a general professional development nature, but of course we also have a focus on supporting female scientists. As always, you don’t have to be a female scientist to support female scientists :). (Please have them RSVP as well though, so we know to order them a lunch!)
Hope to see you there!
