Today, we look to the students from around the world who have walked out of school to demand action on climate. We’re reminded that it’s not enough to draw inspiration from them today if we fail to act on climate tomorrow. 500 Women Scientists reaffirms our commitment to advocate for science-based policies that promote equity and justice—and leave the world a better place for the generations ahead!

Happy International Women’s Day! We are excited to be celebrating by raising a pint with our pods. Tag us on twitter or instagram (@500WomenSci) and let us know how you are celebrating. And as put by Athene Donald, let’s also honor those forced out of science. Thank you to everyone in our network, we are so grateful to you and the important work you do!

This week, we showed our gratitude to our amazing and strong women colleagues and supporters for #InternationalDayOfWomenInScience. We also continued to use our collective voice to make sure women’s contributions in STEM and beyond are recognized and valued. In March, we are launching a new campaign to bring more visibility to the journeys of SciMoms and SciParents - please share your story with us! Have a great weekend everyone!

Last weekend many from our organization marched - in a women’s march, on #MLK day and for #indigenouspeoplesmarch. We love to see you all out there standing up for social justice and taking steps towards breaking down a system that truly only supports on a few and holds back most. We know alone, marching will not bring change, but it does bring us together, helps build our network, and makes us stronger when we return home to enact the necessary changes - to make science more open, inclusive, and accessible. Thank you everyone for what you do. Enjoy your well earned weekend!

Many of our members and pods will join the Women’s March this Saturday in Washington, DC and around the world. We address the recent controversies and lay out our reasons for marching this Saturday. Marching is the beginning, it is not the end. Every day, we work together to make a better world.

Hey friends, how are you doing this week? How is your #selfcare routine? Are you exercising? Making time for your own thoughts? Making time away from your computer to be with your friends and family? Maybe a goal for the weekend? Sunday I have 4 conference calls so on Saturday I am leaving my computer and phone and home and plan to get time outside! I also plan to take a nap, I can’t wait! Big hug and see you next week.

Happy New Year! 2018 was awesome, and honestly we can’t wait to see what 2019 brings. I started my year off by listening to the latest episode of the Nod, on setting your intentions for the year. I love the connotation of ‘intention’ because it allows for and encourages assessment and reflection at the end of the year - more so than ‘goals’ or ‘resolutions.’ What do you think? Do you set intentions? Make resolutions? Or do you have another tradition for starting out a new year?

We were thrilled to see so many women elected this week (116!). With those victories came so many firsts across states and districts- first Native American women, first black women , first muslim women, first LGBTQ, the list goes on. Still, our work does not start or end with one political defeat or victory, and we know that this is only one step. You all, our community, and the women elected this week inspire us to keep working for change. Enjoy the weekend friends.
