Who are we?

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to this community.  My name is Jessica Kirkpatrick.  I am one of the new members of the CSWA.  As part of my membership commitment, I will be regularly blogging on the Women in Astronomy Blog.

I will find it very helpful in this new role to understand more about the audience of this blog and what topics people are interested exploring here.

There are "women in science" topics that have regularly been blogged about (i.e. two-body problems, work-life balance, mentoring, sexual harassment, unconscious bias).  I am interested in not only continuing to explore these topics, but also branch out into other areas.  I would love your suggestions of topics.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, please comment below to let me know who you are, and what you are interested in reading about here.  If you don't feel comfortable posting a comment below, you can also email me (berkeleyjess at gmail).

I am very excited to contribute to this community!
