I'm happy to report that the Women in Wetlands symposium held at the SWS conference in Madison, WI this week was a rousing success. We had excellent presentations by seven speakers (see photo), who talked about writing, giving presentations, NSF grants, mentoring, and alternative careers in wetland science. The session was well attended by both male and female students and young professionals interested in improving their skills.
There was plenty of positive feedback from attendees, who expressed their thanks for the opportunity to hear some really helpful information and to talk with successful women.
We also held our annual business meeting and installed new officers.
