We are very excited to announce registration for the 1st Annual Society for Women in Marine Science (SWMS) Spring Symposium is now open here. The program will focus on mentoring and career choices available to women and other minorities in marine science. Our keynote speakers will be Dr. Bethany Jenkins (URI) and Catalina Martinez (NOAA). We will also have workshops led by other marine scientists, networking opportunities, a poster session, and abundant time for small group discussions; a tentative agenda and workshop ideas are provided in the registration. You can find the programs from our previous fall events here
