WOMEN IN ASTRONOMY IV: THE MANY FACES OF WOMEN ASTRONOMERS – June 9-11, 2017 – Austin, TX

February 9, 2017

Women in Astronomy IV: The Many Faces of Women Astronomers, a conference sponsored by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and the American Astronomical Society (AAS), with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), will take place June 9 – 11, 2017, following the 2017 AAS Summer Meeting in Austin, Texas.

Through extensive use of workshops, panels, and small group discussions, WiA IV will focus on issues that affect a broad spectrum of women in astronomy. It will address the challenges specific to women and what institutions can do to create welcoming, equitable workplaces. Workshops and breakout sessions will be structured with the aim of producing policy white papers, tool kits, and resource lists.

    Please consider attending as a member of the planetary science community.

    Too often, our voices are left out of the “astronomical community” discussions…we have many fresh perspectives to offer that they may not: experience in industry, extended/remote field trips, and interdisciplinary work environments.

    Your attendance also helps reinforce the importance of having these conversations in our planetary science community. Leadership of our professional societies will take notice and will now have a pool of trusted community members (you!) they can turn to for advice and guidance.

    See you there!
