Our mission is to promote a diverse and inclusive scientific community that brings progressive science-based solutions to local and global challenges
This week we push for the voice of women and science in critical positions. It’s time to get on the phone!
Another week where the events in Washington DC are sowing chaos and fear. Let us not get distracted by the circus and remind ourselves why we have come together in this amazing powerful team. To empower, to take action, and to reach out to our communities. Enjoy and rest up this weekend, and Happy Mother's Day weekend to all the moms!
Join us in celebration!
On June 3rd, 500 Women Scientists is hosting a Launch Party - and we invite you to join in!
We are all aware that the EPA has come under attack by the new administration- facing serious funding cuts and cuts to regulations vital to human health and environmental protection. This week, the Fort Collins Pod has put together an action for you, to step up and tell the agency why our country needs environmental protection!
Today on #meetascientist, we get to know Wendy Bohon, the leader of 500WS outreach and communication. From science communication to motherhood to fighting misogyny, Wendy crushes it and demonstrates that with a strong group of women, we can take some serious shots at the glass ceiling! Thanks Wendy for sharing your story with us!
Hello May! We are only one month away from our official launch and we could not be more excited! Start planning with your Pod what you will be doing June 3rd to celebrate.

This week on #meetascientist we want to take time to introduce you to the creative and adventurous women behind The Cairn Project.
