We are public scholarship in action.
The mission of 500 Women Scientists is to promote a diverse and inclusive scientific community that brings progressive science-based solutions to local and global challenges. You can learn more about the national organization at https://500womenscientists.org/.
Our local pod is over 100 members strong representing STEM and social scientists in the Seattle area. We are postdocs, research scientists, science educators, faculty, and grad students from multiple institutions. As a local pod, we advocate for diversity and inclusivity in the sciences, increased scientific literacy through public engagement, engagement in science policy, and empowering women in science: public scholarship in action.
