Happy Friday everyone!
We are excited to step into September, ramp up our involvement with the Global Climate Strikes, and launch new projects this fall. Look for updates on the Fellowship for the Future, a new initiative on Reproductive Justice, more from the SciMom Journeys team, more resources for our global network of pods, an op-ed editorial board supporting writing projects, and more!
But for now, lets wrap up this week.
