Our mission is to serve society by making science open, inclusive, and accessible.
500 Women Scientists will be the foremost organization for the transformation of leadership, diversity, and public engagement in science.
Do you get our newsletter (if not, sign up!)? Have you gotten yourself a 500WS t-shirt? What are your resistance plans for the summer? We will be standing up for climate change, stay tuned for more details in our upcoming newsletters!
Meet the London Pod! Their mission is centered on empowering Women and Non-binary scientists, through various awareness raising and outreach activities.
This week we encourage you to take action by educating, leading, and setting an example for others:
"Much of the necessary knowledge is now available but we do not use it. We train ecologists in our universities and even employ them in our governmental agencies but we seldom take their advice." - Rachel Carson
We know girls rule the world, and this video sure drives that point home :). What activities are you doing this weekend while the boys sit alone at the bar? Happy Weekend Ladies!
Out pods rock! This week we have two pod-related actions.
Summer is just around the corner, many of us may be taking a break, trying to catch up with life and the world, recharging, or traveling. As you make your summer plans, know that we appreciate all the effort that you have contributed over the last six months. We are working hard to focus the goals and outcomes of our organization. At any point, please share your ideas and your pod's ideas with us!
The 500 Women Scientists leadership team and advisory board met at the University of Colorado Sustainability Innovation Lab to hone in on who we are as an organization, what we stand for, and what we want to accomplish in the coming weeks, months, and years.
