ESA Diversity Luncheon: Women in power-networking, negotiating, and nurturing ecology careers
Guest Panelists: Sunny Power; Pam Mattson; and Nancy Grimm Women in Power: Networking, Negotiating, and Nurturing Ecology Careers The 2007 Diversity Luncheon will provide career advancement advice for young ecologists, using real-life experiences by a panel of three distinguished women ecology leaders. Pam, Sunny, and Nancy -- who serve as role models for women and minorities in ecology -- will share their secrets about how they succeeded in a traditional male-dominated world of science. A recent ESA survey of women and minorities in ecology (WAMIE II) revealed disappointing results about the advancement of women and minorities in ecological career paths. The panelists will each present stories to empower the audience with helpful tips about the importance of networking among peers; how to creatively and assertively negotiate a job contract; and tips for enhancing the career pathways for women and minorities in ecology. The audience will have opportunities to ask questions and seek advice about important, yet less-spoken, aspects of ecological career pathways.
