Hello all! I was inspired by these articles that Nicolle Zellner shared on the AASWomen newsletter, about a team of people who made it their mission to help promote equal representation in AGU award nominations.
EOS Article in which they describe their process and gives tips and best practices for success: Equal Representation in Scientific Honors Starts with Nominations
This follow up includes a nice graph of the increase of female participants in 2019
And it is time again to nominate deserving colleagues for awards. Here are some of the major professional societies and their award deadlines (scroll over the text for links):
DPS Award Nominations are open now and close April 1 !!!
AGU Award Nominations are open now and close March 15 !!!
General GSA Award Nominations are mostly closed (on Feb 1), except for recognition of an international colleague, but the Planetary Division Awards deadlines are spread throughout the year !
What other awards are out there? Comment below and I will add them to this list.
