FECS Event at the 2023 March Meeting

If you’re interested in *my* talk, that information is here.

I’m really excited about the slate of events that FECS has put together for the 2023 March Meeting in Las Vegas. This includes Monday’s talk by Dr. Savannah Garmon “A trans perspective on building supportive and inclusive physics communities” and Tuesday’s FECS reception which will, for the first time since 2019, include complementary BEER. Hope to see you there!

Come visit us at the FECS table (location TBD) where we will be giving out FECS-branded merch (luggage tags, totes and webcam covers).

Please join us for FECS (Forum for Early Career Scientists) sponsored sessions at the upcoming APS March Meeting in Las Vegas:
