The ASA Women in Astronomy Chapter is holding a 1-day workshop on Friday 13th May ATNF Marsfield Lecture Theatre in Sydney. This workshop will present some of the issues women face during their astronomy careers and provide time for discussion of approaches that can be implemented by our community, from individuals to institutions, to address them.
There will be two guest speakers, Dr Rosalind (Ros) Dubs (Chair, Space Industry Innovation Council) and Nicole McKenna (Vice President, National Foundation for Australian Women).
There is no registration fee to attend the workshop. For catering purposes, please email Sarah Brough (firstname.lastname@example.org) to indicate your attendance, no later than:
*** 15 April 2011 ***
All are welcome! The reduction in the percentage of women at each career step is an issue that affects everyone, as women and men are equally talented and deserve equal opportunity, and full participation of men and women will maximize excellence in the field. With that issue in mind, this workshop is open to all and everyone is strongly encouraged to attend.
