March Women’s History / #ScienceWoman campaign
FWS is promoting a “#ScienceWoman” campaign for women’s history month (March).
Basically they are highlighting “women making conservation history.”
Bat Conservation International is also participating.
I would like to suggest that PARC join in.
A friend w/ FWS offered to share their Photoshop template for “women in science.”
I think we could add photos here, although it looks like we’d need to have a Flickr:
Does ARC have a flickr?
Here’s a photo from the pool related to reptiles:
So far I’ve made one post, which seemed to be pretty well received on Facebook:
My friend at FWS shared a few other things with me:
A few women that came to mind immediately were Allison Haskell, Rachel Carson, and then perhaps we can highlight contemporary women scientists who are members of PARC. We a great diversity of women in science here in SEPARC so it should be pretty easy to make at least a few.
I think it’s a good way to get some broader interest in PARC and also celebrate the diversity of PARC membership.
