March Women’s History / #ScienceWoman campaign

Hey there,

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.



About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
