Daring to Dig: Women in Paleontology
October 26th at 7pm ET
Museum of the Earth and WSKG are hosting a virtual panel on October 26th at 7pm geared towards middle/high school girls, their families and educators. The field of paleontology has been greatly shaped by women despite encountering resistance at every level required for success in the profession. The work of achieving equity in paleontology is still ongoing, but in the 21st century, paleontology is becoming a more welcoming science for everyone, regardless of sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, class, or ability.
Our panel of eminent women paleontologists will share their experiences, inspiring the next generation of girls to pursue careers in science and paleontology.
This panel is a complement to the exhibit Daring to Dig: Women in American Paleontology, on display at the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, NY until December 2021 and available online at DaringtoDig.org.
