This year, 500 Women Scientists is partnering with Science-A-Thon —a week-long, international, social media campaign to change how science and scientists are seen in the public sphere. Ever wonder what a seismologist does? Or what the day looks like for a TV meteorologist? All week, scientists—from academia to industry—will be posting pictures on social media of the work they do and raising funds to support women across the globe in the Earth Sciences.
Funds raised during Science-A-Thon will support the Earth Science Women’s Network and their ScienceForward initiative, which promotes scientists as role models and builds on-ramps for students to prepare for STEM careers.
