DPS WIPS Lunch 2014! – Register by October 15th
for an informal meeting and discussion hour over lunch on Tuesday, November 11th from 12:00-1:30. This year’s topics will revolve around the ideas of powerful communication and how to be an ally to minority community members. We will have presentation material interspersed with plenty of discussion time. Please feel free to bring any information/announcements related to women in astronomy and planetary science to share.
Thanks to the generosity of the DPS committee, we will be able to provide lunch this year. All are welcome(!), but pre-registration at http://bit.ly/DPS_WIPS_2014 is required due to space limitations. Please try to register before October 15th so we can accurately place the lunch order (we will get a few extras, but lunch is not guaranteed after that point).
- This year’s organizers are Sondy Springmann, Maggie McAdams, and Kelsi Singer (from afar – sadly I won’t be attending this year).
We will also continue this year with our “bring a guest” theme – Invite a friend or colleague who has never been to a WIPS lunch but might be interested to come with you as your guest. 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!)
