ESM GSO updates

Hey all,

Some notes regarding events happening this semester.

Writing group will be held Wednesdays from 1:30-3pm in ASI room 205.  Every-other meetup will involve a chance to exchange writing for peer review for the first 45 minutes.  This way, if you are only interested in peer review, you can target which meetings to attend.  Otherwise, it is a space to focus on writing and to be held accountable for any writing goals you wish to set for yourself. All are welcome to attend!

We will also be hosting a monthly Diversity in Science brown bag lunch with a guest speaker. This is an event designed to allow students to have a frank conversation with each other and an invited speaker regarding their perspective on diversity in our profession and opportunities to overcome any obstacles. The schedule so far is:

Dr. Margaret Brittingham, February 27th, 11:30am-1pm in FRB 217 (see attached flyer)

Dr. Laura Leites, March 23rd, TBD

Dr. Lisette Waits, April 17th, TBD

Stay tuned for more details!

General Body Meeting and Careers in NPS Discussion

Do you LOVE snacks and meeting with your ESM GSO friends? Come to our general body meeting next week!
Folks were interested in jobs outside of academia, so we will be having three speakers come discuss career opportunities in different federal agencies over the course of the semester. Join us next Tuesday (21st) to hear from Dr. Matt Marshall, the program manager for the Eastern Rivers and Mountains Network of the National Parks Service.
We’ll spend the first few minutes going over GSO happenings, then we’ll have a presentation and discussion with Matt. See attached flier for details.
See you there!
