Celebrating Diversity in the Earth & Atmospheric Sciences Department
About the Speaker Series
The Grace Anne Stewart Speaker Series connects students and faculty of the Earth and Atmospheric Science (EAS) department to a greater diversity of female scientists by inviting two female scientists to visit the department each year. The program is designed to expand the professional networks of faculty and students, foster discussion about gender equity, and provide students with more female role models/mentors.
Grace Anne Stewart Speakers are invited to participate in several events during a 1-2 day visit:
- A one-hour research talk presented as part of the ATLAS talk series. These talks are coordinated by the EAS department’s graduate student society and are attended by department students (graduate and some undergraduate), post-doctoral researchers, and faculty members.
- A ‘Behind the Scenes’ informal question and answer session where graduate students can learn more about the speaker’s career path.
- A wine and cheese social event with department faculty and graduate students.
- Additional small group or one-on-one meetings with faculty or students with shared interests. These might include lab tours or class visits.
