The WiPB Committee met on 03/01/2020 [Via Zoom]. Committee members present included: Eva Farre (chair), Sabrina Chin, Li Tian, Katie Murphy, Jenny Mortimer Dianne Pater. Sylvia Lee and Crispin Taylor also attended.

We discussed the planning and organization of upcoming webinars and discussed our activities planned for PB2021, which are a workshop on “Building Sustained Commitments to Equity and Inclusion” in collaboration with EDIC and a collaboration with the ECPS & Membership committee to organize a workshop on “Careers Beyond Academia”, led by Sibongile Mafu and Katie Murphy respectively. If you are interested in serving as a panelist in one of these workshops please let us know. PB21 registration will open soon, so stay tuned!

We are planning on organizing a screening and panel discussion of the documentary ‘Picture a Scientist’. More information will come soon!

We are also working on efforts to increase visibility of a more diverse set of scientist via Project Biodiversify and Wikipedia. If you are interested in working in one of these projects, please contact us.  

The WiPB Committee will be meeting again June 7th. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to participate in any of our efforts.
