Best wishes in 2017

Dear 500 Women Scientists,

Thank you for helping us end 2016 with smiles on our faces. You all are the motivation behind this awesome movement and the reason we can’t wait to get started with 2017. And boy do we have big plans for 2017!

Our New Year’s Resolutions:

  • Take actions that are true to our Mission.
  • Reach 15K or 20K or 30K…  we need your help to continue to share the message of 500 Women Scientists. Don’t forget, we have a Supporters page too!

  • Weekly posts on our website and Facebook group - a call to action, an interview with a scientist, and a wrap-up (if you aren’t already, make sure you follow us on Facebook, Twitter and check the website to stay up to date).

  • Build on our momentum - we are an organization and voice for you! What do you want to see us do? Send us a message!

Upcoming Activities:

  • We will march as a group of women scientists in the Women’s March in DC on January 21. Let us know if you will be there too or if you are organizing in another city! Stay tuned to our weekly updates on the march in Washington and beyond.

  • Conference Meet-Ups: Are you planning to attend a conference in 2017? Then you can also plan a Meet-Up! More details and a conference meet-up guide coming soon.

Over the past week, we took a much needed holiday to spend time with our friends and family, but we weren’t complete idle.

What we have done:

  • Published our Mission and Values.
  • Commented on how scientists can prepare for Trump.
  • Appeared in Veja (send us a photo of the article if you are in Brazil!)

What we like:

Thank you all and best wishes in 2017!

Jane and Kelly
