New Stuff: Part II

Had a good time last week at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. "Miscommunications, Misunderstandings, and Mistakes: Gender, Science and the Press." the presentation of FairerScience friends Kathryn Campbell-Kibler, Annalee Newtiz, Abbe Herzig, Eric Jolly and Shirley Malcom was really good. We will be putting up audio-video highlights of it soon.

In the meantime the session convinced me it was time to add a new section to FairerScience: "Presentation Tools." We've started it with two power points presentations (which can also be downloaded in pds):

Women, Science and Media: Where is the FairerScience? provides a general introduction to issues related to women scientists and the media and suggests some things that can be done to get more accurate portrayals.

FairerScience in an Unfair World targets some things scientists and science organizations can do to improve media coverage of gender and science.

You are, as my Aunt Rona would say, more than welcome to duplicate and use them as long as you don't make money off of them and you do credit us.

Take a look at them and let me know what you think. We will be adding more presentation tools and would love any ideas you have about what should be included.
