I can not believe it. I found out today that myself and my colleagues from 500 Women Scientists Jane Zelikova (@j_zelikova) and Katarzyna Nowak (@katzyna) made the Bitch List Top 50 people for 2018 (full list https://www.bitchmedia.org/article/2018-bitch-50). This is for our work with the Request a Woman Scientist Resource, which really would not exist if not for help from @tableau software, Maryam Zaringhalam @webmz_ and of course the organization 500 Women Scientists https://500womenscientists.org/ @500womensci.
“Women’s voices and contributions have long been ignored, especially in the STEM fields. All-male panels are so common that there’s even a name for them—manels—and Request a Woman Scientist was created to put an end to this practice. Liz McCullagh, Katarzyna Nowak, and Jane Zelikova created the platform so that any time someone needs a scientist to speak, collaborate on a project, or share expertise, they’re connected with an extensive multidisciplinary network of vetted women in science.”
We would love for this project to continue to grow, so if you are a self-identifying woman in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, math, and medicine) sign up to be a resource today! https://500womenscientists.org/request-a-scientist/
Next time you need a resource, look to use our site to make sure that you are getting good representation of both women and men!
