This event is an informal meeting for all interested parties. This means you do not have to be a woman to support women in science or be interested in learning some professional development tips - for yourself, or to share with others :).
Dr. Sarah Thébaud (Sociology Professor at UC Santa Barbara) has graciously agreed to speak to us about her research on implicit bias. We will present some info but leave plenty of time for discussion. Also feel free to bring relevant announcements or send to Kelsi ahead of time.
A BIG Thanks!! to both AURA and the DPS commitee for sponsoring this event again this year!Learn more about AURA here: http://www.aura-astronomy.org/
