The Women in Entomology Network meets at the ESA Annual meeting to encourage networking, mentoring, and collegiality among established entomologists and those who are students or beginning their careers in the field, with an emphasis on encouraging more women to enter and stay in the entomology. It is a great opportunity for attendees to meet and talk with other women at all points in their careers, as well as with Society leadership. It provides opportunities to encourage involvement in the Society and volunteerism for activities and positions within their sections, branches, and the Society.
On Monday, 12 November, a breakfast buffet will be available from 6:15 - 8 AM at Windows on the Park, Holiday Inn Downtown (525 Henley St., Knoxville) for $14 (includes meal, tax, tip) per person, payable at the door (there is no RSVP). Sponsorship (buying breakfast) of students and early professionals is greatly encouraged and on-the-fly matches will be enabled where possible.
This year, we will welcome Dr. Silvia Dorn as a special guest, to share her experiences of combining career and family. Hope to see you there!
