Athena Swan promotes and supports the diversity of all staff in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), and aims to address gender, race and sexual orientation inequalities and imbalance in these disciplines and, in particular, the under-representation of certain groups in senior roles.
There are just over two weeks to go until abstract submission for the Goldschmidt2016 conference closes on February 26th. The full list of sessions is available on the Program page of the conference website.
Early Career Program
In recent years, the Goldschmidt conference has increasingly
emphasized programs aimed at scientists just starting out on their
careers. The 2016 Goldschmidt will build on this trend, offering several new activities while retaining highly successful programs from previous years, as well as an expanded travel grant program. Grant applications must be completed by the abstract deadline.
Student Volunteer Team
The meeting would not be possible without the fantastic support we
get from our Student Volunteer team. With a waived registration and
small stipend to help with costs, volunteering can make attending the
meeting possible. We are still looking for a number of team members. If
you have good spoken English and would be able to spend 4-6 days of the
meeting (including the Sunday) helping us run the meeting please apply here.
