LGBTQIA+ Rainbow Reception at Ocean Sciences

1. There will be a rainbow reception at the Ocean Sciences Meeting in San Diego in a few weeks!
Where: At the conference center, on the West Terrace

What: Come share conversation and refreshments with fellow LGBTQIA+ Ocean Scientists and Engineers! At this informal event, we hope to get to know each other, build community, and get organized. Stop by anytime, there is no schedule! Allies: Please support us by spreading the word, encouraging your LGBTQIA+ colleagues to attend, and staying tuned for opportunities to get involved in the future. Contact with any questions. This event was made possible by the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion office at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Academic Programs and Diversity Initiatives at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Additional sponsors include the gAyGU chapter of NOGLSTP, and the ocean science and engineering departments of the University of Washington, Oregon State University, University of New Hampshire, and University of Rhode Island.

2. We’ve built new google mailing lists to get more organized and build an online community! Please join by following these links:  lgbtq_geoscience and lgbtq_oceanography if you are interested in staying in touch and receiving news about LGBTQIA+ events in the future.
3. AGU members can now join the LGBTQ+ Connect Community. You can choose how often (if at all) you receive information about postings. Join us there to contribute to the conversation about planning future meetups and network with others in the community.
