CSWA @ the 237th AAS Meeting

by Nicolle Zellner and Jeremy Bailin

AAS meeting participants are invited to join members of the Committee on the Status of Women in Astronomy (CSWA) at their Splinter Session on January 12 (6:50 pm to 8:20 pm ET) to learn about CSWA activities. Based on input to the committee's 2019 community survey, the CSWA is beginning to develop and undertake projects to support the committee's Strategic Plan for the 2020s, which will guide the committee's efforts for the next decade. In this session, participants will learn about the committee's Strategic Plan, its focus areas, objectives, and potential projects. They will also learn about opportunities to become involved in the process of implementing the projects and assessing the outcomes.
