As if you don't have enough things to do

Why don't you present at the WEPAN's annual meeting meeting this year?

You have until Nov 12th to submit an abstract. They are spotlighting:
* Developing Engineering Talent from K to Grey
* Communicating, Marketing and Effective Messaging
* Building and Sustaining Collaborative Partnerships & Engaging Volunteers
* Developing Diversity Program Staff
* Impacting Policy, Legislation and Media.

Jenn, FairerScience friend Kathryn Campbell-Kibler and I have have submitted a proposal for a great workshop-- Will tell you more if it gets accepted.

If you are an AWIS member, why don't you nominate someone to be in the 2009 Class of AWIS Fellows?

You have until December 15th to do so. The Fellows Program aims to recognize and honor women and men who have > demonstrated exemplary commitment to the achievement of equity for women > in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Nominees don't have to be AWIS members but nominators do.

I am a member of the 2008 Class of AWIS fellows. It was and continues to be a great honor (and I love my lapel pin).

While you do these things, I'm off to hear Akiko Busch speak. She's the one who got me into swimming the Hudson River. I'm going to do it again next year-- what to join me?
