Melanie Gerault was given the opportunity to talk about didthisreallyhappen.net at the 2018 American Geophysical Union annual meeting in Washington DC, USA.
It was a fantastic opportunity to spread the word about our initiative and we were very grateful. Many thanks to those who have reached out to us with their testimonies in the wake of the presentation! The session (Diversity, Inclusion, and Equality in Geosciences I: Gender Issues and Solutions) was organised so as to give ample time for discussions with the audience after the talks.
Nothing makes us more hopeful than hearing about the solid initiatives that were presented during this session! Progress is on its way!
Bailey Bredford, a science journalist, approached us a while ago to present our project to the geoscience community. He wrote an article that is up online in the EOS magazine. The article tells our story on how step by step the project got its present form.
