Last week, Instagram was full of #WomeninScience posts and it was incredibly exciting to see this take off even more each year. But as I scrolled through tons of girls in white lab coats & goggles holding pipettes, Petri dishes, and Erlenmeyers, I thought I should share the kind of work I do as a scientist who doesn’t have a white lab coat with her name on it! 👇🏼♻️👇🏼♻️👇🏼♻️👇🏼♻️ After graduating uni, I worked as an environmental scientist for the state of Hawaii in the Environmental Management Division. We were the state’s version of the EPA, and I quickly found out that I was technically classified as a law enforcement agent, as well. My role was to regulate all of the composting facilities, transfer stations, convenience centers, and a large percent of the recycling facilities in the state. Additionally, I was on-call during my office hours to answer any questions and complaints from the public regarding waste management. These calls ranged from “Where can I take the ink from my printer to be recycled?” to “My neighbor is dumping ‘toxic’ waste into the gulch behind our houses. How soon can you be here?” This job kept me on my toes!! And you can see why my boyfriend coined the term ‘Garbage Police’ when people asked what kind of work I did 😂 - I stayed up on research that applied to the types of facilities I oversaw and worked with my engineer partner to ensure that the permits our division issued for facilities to legally operate reflected their actual day-to-day operations, the latest technology and findings, and any amendments to federal or state law. I also worked on several other special projects on top of my regular duties. It was a very very very cool job that definitely doesn’t sound cool when I’ve tried to quickly explain with “oh I’m a scientist I work with trash!” 🤣 I’d say about 30% of my time was spent out in the field performing inspections at my facilities and at sites where alleged illegal activity was occurring 👷🏼‍♀️👮🏼 About 10% of my time was spent meeting with my colleagues to pick each other’s brains on cases 🗣 And about 60% of my time...

THE WAIT... For every time you're being idle, you're losing money, you're losing growth. -@ddmprogram. What are/were you doing while waiting for that job?. While @drdedun was talking about this at our #becomingmore program, I had a brief flashback through my journey so far, but it dint hit me quite well till @drweyoms asked me to write about my career journey so far for #internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience. I realized how much I consciously and "unconsciously" kept my self busy with one course or the other, one volunteering job or the other, one advocacy/charity project or the other and even WarriorStory, till I got an "actual job". And in the cause of all that I learnt, I grew, and met different people, built and maintained relationships that I dint know will even help me now. So today, I'm encouraging my fellow warriors (and non-warrior") to always find a way to grow and learn and prepare yourself for that job (business). #warriorstory#becomingmore19#mondaymotivation#my2019journeybydrdedun#beintentional#beeducated#besickleaware#beinspired#whatsyourstory#whatsyoursicklecellstory

Dungarees buds! This is the lab at our field station in Borneo. When not battling leeches and hunting frogs, we are writing up reports and collating data here, often getting electric shocks from our laptops. 🌿 I’m all for jungle fashion, I’m also pretty big on maintaining a skincare routine in the field. People can get pretty faux-macho at times, I’ve been places that are pretty competitive on ‘who’s the grossest’ where a culture of disdain is employed towards people who do things differently. Luckily this hasn’t really been the case here.

#InternationalDayofWomenandGirlsinScience #MeetOurResearchers

Dr Claramae Chia,
#InternationalDayofWomenandGirlsinScience#MeetOurResearchers Dr Claramae Chia, a clinician scientist with @nationalcancercentresg , hopes to find better treatment for patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC), one of the most serious complications of gastrointestinal and gynaecological cancers. PC is a common form of growth confined to the abdominal cavity and is a late manifestation of such cancers. In fact, up to 50% of patients with colorectal and gastric cancer develop PC during the course of their disease. An analysis of more than 10,000 patients with colorectal cancer revealed that patients with PC have the worst prognosis as compared to those with liver or lung growths. We believe that Dr Chia’s work in this area will go a long way in improving the survival rates and quality life of cancer for these patients! #YouGoGirl#ScienceInTheHospital

Monday marked the 4th International Day of Women and Girls in Science (IDWGS), a day which was established by the United Nations to recognize the role women play in the fields of STEM. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, + Mathematics) education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematicsin contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy (Tsupros, 2009). By exposing students to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and, hopefully, pursue a job in a STEM field. 🔬💡🌍 In honor of IDWGS-2019 we are putting a spotlight on Jessica Bunnell, the City of Cape Canaveral’s Laboratory Manager. Jessica performs laboratory analyses to determine chemical, physical and/or biological characteristics and composition of the water reclamation facility influent (flow in), effluent (flow out), process waters and sludge as required under the City’s Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) facility permit. Jessica’s work is very important, as it keeps the Waste Water Reclamation Facility accredited under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), FDEP and National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Conference (NELAC) quality assurance studies to maintain laboratory certifications. ♻️🔆 In Jessica’s words, “This world has benefited from female minds such as Marie Curie, Barbara McClintock, Rosalind Franklin, and Lisa Meitner. Without more female input, STEM industries will only be able to go so far. For me, being a female scientist is empowering and to know that my work is improving the Community or someone’s life, is valuable and rewarding.”

Today is the #INTERNATIONALDAYOFWOMENANDGIRLSINSCIENCE - a hasthtag filled with some of those brilliant minds and loving hearts. Women like #AnnaFisher, the first mother in outerspace. #MariaSklodiwsa Curie, the firstwoman to be awarded a Nobel Prize ( also the first person to win two, and the only person to recieve the prize in two different scientific fields). Women in science today like Alisa Vitti of Floliving working to help women take control of their hormonal cycle organically. And women like Jane Goodall. A favorite quote of hers "What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make". If you haven't heard the story of how Jane's mother fostered curiousity in her allowing to get lost for hours learning from the animals on their property - make that priroity to look into today. The basis of science, and life, is in observation. Thank you Jane for that reminder.

“More than ever today, the world needs SCIENCE, and science needs
@thedoctorbae “More than ever today, the world needs SCIENCE, and science needs WOMEN.” 🧬Yesterday was the International Day of Women and Girls in Science! Did you know that only about 30% of women select to pursue a STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) related field in college? 👩🏼‍🔬In the US, women make up only 24% of those employed in STEM occupations. What’s worse, this gap is even larger for women of color. Women of color make up less than 10% of working scientists and engineers in the industries. 👩🏼‍⚕️Our economies and our societies lose out when we fail to include half of the world’s brainpower in our engines of innovation. This trend will continue if we don’t invest our time, energy and resources in finding a solution. 🤓Research shows that female role models are crucial for inspiring girls to stay in STEM. Thus we must highlight the many contributions women already make. 📚 When young girls do not see themselves reflected as scientists, engineers, mathematicians and technologists (or doctors) in the world around them, many do not believe they can pursue careers in these fields. Closing the gender gap requires us to challenge and shift these cultural norms. I started this account fed up with being put in a box and wanted to challenge stereotypes. I wanted to show girls that your outward appearance has no bearing on your intelligence. I hope to continue to lead by example and encourage young women not to be intimidated by STEM. 🤟🏼 #womeninstem#smartissexy#internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience#stemgirls#stemeducation#breakthestereotype#smashingstereotypes#womeninscience#fashoncurvez

У част Међународног дана жена и девојака у науци који је обележен 11. фебруара 2
У част Међународног дана жена и девојака у науци који је обележен 11. фебруара 2019. године, истакли бисмо изузетан допринос научница и професорки Хемијског факултета српској науци. Упркос одређеном напретку, у светским оквирима, жене научнице су и даље ређе промовисане, добијају мање грантова и чешће напуштају истраживања од мушкараца. Хемијски факултет је редак пример где овај тренд није заступљен. Од шездесет професора на факултету, који се уједно активно баве и научним радом, више од половине су жене. Као једно од најзначајнијих постигнућа наших колегиница истакли бисмо координацију најпрестижнијим европским пројектом, Х2020, коју је у 2018. години добила професорка Тања Ћирковић Величковић, а која је у истој години изабрана и за дописну чланицу САНУ. Награде Задужбине Веселина Лучића за најбоља научна остварења наставника и сарадника Универзитета у Београду за 2015., односно 2016. годину додељене су професоркама Драгани Милић(RCS Advances, IF 3,289)и Маји Груден (Accounts of Chemical Research, IF 22.003). Поред ова два награђена рада, између великог броја објављених научних радова у престижним научним часописима, као изузетне у протекле три године истакли бисмо и радове професорки Зоране Ферјанчић, у Angewandte Chemie (IF 11,709), Весне Медаковић и Снежане Зарић у Coordination Chemistry Reviews u 2016. i 2017. (IF 13,324),Тање Ћирковић Величковић у Nature Biotechnology (IF 41,667). Млада доценткиња, Александра Митровић, добитница престижне Хумболтове стипендије за постдокторско усавршавање, ову годину је почела публиковањем рада у Angewandte Chemie (IF 12,102). Пре ње су ову стипендију добиле професорке Снежана Зарић која је и најцитиранији научник на факултету и Марија Гавровић Јанкуловић, шеф Катедре за биохемију. #hemijskifakultet#хемијскифакултет#хемија#hemija#chemistry#womeninscience#univerzitetubeogradu#internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience#science

This week started with International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2019. Coincidentally I picked up some STEM books from the library for my daughter although I suspect they are aimed at slightly older children. On the STEM theme I also finally got around to watching @fryrsquared programme about Ada Lovelace that I recorded ages ago, such an interesting show. My daughter told me the other day that something she was lifting was 'too heavy for girl's' which really frustrated me so I have been reading up about using less gendered language; I tell myself off internally ever time I say she is a good girl. One of her favourite recent reads was The Space Train by wonderful duo @maudiept and @karljamesmountford . Although Jakob is the main character, he's in space with his go-get-em granny who is a great role model. I do think my daughter's favourite character may be Derek though! #thespacetrain#internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience#longesteverhashtag#howlongistoolong#genderequality#equalopportunity#feminist#raisingkids#raisinggirls#girlscandoanything#adalovelace#forbes#pinkandbluetsunami#STEM#STEMgirls

February 11 was #internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience . This is an illustration from one of my favorite recent projects: a picture book about astronomer Maria Mitchell. The beautiful, heartfelt manuscript is by @hayleybwrites Maria was a true leader in science at a time when there were very few women in these positions. I loved learning about her, and her influence on successive generations of all scientists, but particularly girls. What Miss Mitchell Saw will be out in the next year via Beach Lane Books.

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, was established by the UN i
The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, was established by the UN in 2015 to recognize the role women play in the fields of STEM. With women comprising only 25% of STEM related fields, it serves to encourage more women to enter the STEM fields. Dr Anna Powers writes that there are three ways to encourage more women to enter the STEM fields: through role models, changing the image of STEM from being intimidating to being seen as cool, innovative and transformative. She also believes that young women would benefit from exposure to the limitless possibilities that STEM offers. A career in STEM can literally make dreams come true.

A few days late but happy #internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience ! In 8th grade, we were required to give a career speech and I chose to present on earning your PhD and becoming a college professor. I was horrified when I end up receiving a C letter grade on a presentation I worked so hard on (and I believe it was the first C and the worst grade I have ever received). Upset, I bravely inquired to my teacher why I received that grade and she proceeded to tell me that it was a very unreasonable career goal and I should start thinking of “more obtainable” careers. As a discouraged middle schooler, I started looking into other careers. Fortunately, I had the best mentors at UIUC, both professors and graduate students, to lead me back to looking into PhD based careers. Today, I am a third year PhD candidate at one of the top universities in the country. I work in a bioengineering lab where I get to design and develop techniques and devices that may someday advance our field of medicine and medical technology. It has not been the easiest path and challenges me every day, but it is very rewarding and exciting. I also hope to encourage more women and girls to participate in STEM fields and to not get discouraged. #womeninstem#cancerresearch#chemicalbiology#bioengineering#microfluidics#organoid#uchicago#uiuc#february11

Happy International Day of Women and Girls in Science! This day to promote science and gender equality was celebrated by the UN this week. One girl who contributed to our most recent publication, I Hope You Grow, shared her dreams of working in science and spoke about gender equality: "I would like to be a scientist when I grow up. We are attending a science club and doing experiments all the time. Or I might be an engineer...I would make important tools for building houses (because there are not enough houses)...Women's rights are very important. We are almost there in Ireland. India has a bit more to do." -- Mochy #internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience@womenscienceday

I missed international woman in science day. Science has always been a big part of Teleport and something I want more people to be interested. While science fiction, the idea of it being very focused on science and the excitement and joy of science is really at the heart of the story. #internationalwomenandgirlsinscienceday#internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience#womeninscience#womeninscienceday#womeninstem#science#sciencefiction#stem#inventing#scientificprocess#inventor#comics#comicbooks#webcomic

Lovely post from my daughter. #Repost@creichsmix ・・・ In honor of International Day of Women In Science... here’s to the scientist near and dear to my heart, who’s been an inspiration for as long as I have memory. From being the coolest parent to talk to the class on career day (she would bring a real skeleton and all my classmates would freak out!), to leading awkward grade schooler me around the world by ship, to letting me sit in on an autopsy and tour the ballistics lab before I could even drive.... my mom and her work has enabled me to witness and participate in the excavation of a mass grave in Guatemala, meet the renowned palaeoanthropologist Phillip Tobias and hold (sooooooo carefully) in my hands the actual 2.3 million year old Taung baby skull (that’s it in the second photo!!), and to crash the set of the BONES Forensics Lab and play creeper pranks.... I mean, they even made a scientist lady LEGO of my mom!!! So here’s to dynamic women. Here’s to intelligent, passionate women. “Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise.” Thanks mom @kathyreichs for a lifetime of adventure and inspiration. I love your stinking guts. ❤️ #internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience#WomenInSTEM#StrongWomen#RoleModels#KathyReichs#MyMomsCoolerThanYourMom

#WomeninScience Meet Marie, a metrology engineer, who is involved in the ultra-precise alignment of the future EBS storage ring. Indeed each element has to be aligned to within 50 microns, meaning to half the width of a human hair. On Monday we celebrated the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. All through the week, meet Isabelle, Sandrine, Marie, Anne-Lise and Blanka, five ESRF women engineers, whose work is closely related to the EBS, the Extremely Brilliant Source, the 1st high-energy 4th-generation Synchrotron, currently under construction at the ESRF.

Honored and humble to the invitation to speak at the International Day of Women
Honored and humble to the invitation to speak at the International Day of Women and Girls in Science at the United Nations today. I am so inspired by the stories and recommendations from incredible young girls from around the world! Raised the importance of recognizing girls as agencies in the creative problem-solving process to enhance solutions in #stem. I mentioned the work of #svung and #nyas#TheJuniorAcademy as examples of the results occurring through cross-sectional collaboration. Stressed the importance of not only educating but seeing the competence of all the young, competent minds around the globe. Excited to see the outcome and hope to see stakeholders bring promises to actions. ✊🏽✊🏼✊🏿✊ #internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience#womeninscience#girls4sdgs#girlsinscience#flerunga

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more so that we may fear less” - Marie Curie Women in STEM positions are still very underrepresented within Canada, only about 12% of STEM jobs are held by women. FIRST can and does change this ratio. Happy International Women in Science Day from DAUN! #omgrobots#womeninscience#internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience
