The Fall 2017 semester is nearly upon us, and your ESM GSO is already hard at work planning a fun-filled time for you all.
First, we’re happy to announce three new additions to our social co-chair position. Danielle Williams will be joined by Fei Jiang, Emily Ball, and Chelsea DeMarco in a tour de force of social planning!
Keep an eye on this website, add our calendar to your Google calendar, and/or follow us on Facebook to see more events as details become available. The Fall Picnic, Chili Cookoff, and more are approaching in the following months!
Your ESM GSO
We are quickly approaching our second Diversity in Science brown bag lunch event. The aim of this event is to provide a casual space and invite a speaker to discuss what diversity currently looks like in our profession and what the future holds. This includes the challenges to diversity but also the ways to overcome such obstacles. The focus of this lunch will be challenges faced by international researchers in the US, the importance of international collaboration, and the atmosphere for female forestry researchers currently.
The lunch will be:
Date: Thursday, March 23rd from 11:30am-1:00pm
Location: FRB 217
Speaker: Dr. Laura Leites
Dr. Leites did her undergraduate degree at Universidad de la República, Uruguay before moving to the United States for her Masters and PhD at University of Idaho. She focuses on using statistical modeling to predict changes and manage forest ecosystems in response to climate change. She is also active in involving students in international research experience with a collaborative program in Italy for select undergraduate and graduate researchers.
See the attached flyer and please encourage your ESM peers to attend! This lunch is restricted to graduate students and postdocs as to cultivate a safe environment for the speaker to discuss topics without other faculty or staff present.
Feel free to come, bring your lunch, stay for the entire or part of the time, and chat with Dr. Leites.
Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions, thoughts, or questions.
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!
