Women As Leaders in Astronomy (WALA)

Women As Leaders in Astronomy, or WALA, is an informal meeting group open to all women in the department (including undergraduate students, graduate students, research staff, research scientists, postdocs, and faculty). The aim of the group is to increase interactions and foster a positive community of women in the department, spanning all career levels. At our meetings, we discuss topics of relevance to women in STEM, and engage in more relaxed social activities.
