This is the Eugene POD of 500 Women Scientists (https://500womenscientists.org/). 500WS an international effort to make science open, inclusive, and accessible to everyone in every society.
Our vision is to be the foremost organization for the transformation of leadership, diversity, and public engagement in science.
This MeetUp is about planning and carrying out actions that promote and support science and the women who do it. We will be planning events that promote science in the community, such as our recent participation at the STEM Festival at the Lane County Fair, as well as activities that will keep people informed on local, regional, national, and international policies that impact us all. Over the last year our Eugene POD (https://sites.google.com/view/500ws-eugene/) has been focused on highlighting women scientists in Eugene through monthly Science Salons held in town.
This group is meant to work synergistically with any and every other group, especially in Eugene, with similar interests.
