Women in Science Highlight for Women’s History Month (March)

Hi Jessica,

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has started a "#ScienceWoman" campaign to celebrate Women’s History Month.

Check it out:


I wondered if IBSS might be interested in participating?

If so, I have the matching Photoshop template to use (actually given to me by FWS as part of my volunteer work with a wildlife group).

We already have a few photos of women ag research scientists.

Along with simply celebrating the diversity of IBSS researchers,

I think participating holds potential to increase overall exposure of the IBSS partnership / Biomass careers to a broader audience.

Here’s a photo pool we can join:


Let me know if you’d need an example;

Here are some photos from our Flickr collection that I could add the FWS template to:

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.
