Meeting with Jenifer Getz February 25, 2024 at 3 pm over Zoom

This is a reminder that our next branch zoom meeting will be on Sunday, February 25th at 3:00 PM. Jenifer Getz, Executive Director of The New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women, will provide our program. Jenifer will give us an overview of the Commission and answer questions. She also wants to hear from us – some of our AAUW projects, as well as our concerns and priorities – so that she can communicate our information to those with whom she networks. This should be an excellent program.

Picture A Scientist NOVA, PBS April 2021

Women make up less than a quarter of STEM professionals in the US, and numbers are even lower for women of color.

There is a growing group of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists, exposing longstanding discrimination, and leading the way in making science more inclusive. A biologist, a chemist, and a geologist lead viewers on a journey through their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from outright harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, scientific visionaries, including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists, provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
