Early Career and LGTBQ Welcome at American Metereological Society Meeting

Sunday, January 6, 2019

This year's American Meteorological Society (AMS) annual meeting takes place in Phoenix, AZ.  The AMS is committed to diversity, inclusion and equity across all aspects of the atmospheric, oceanic and hydrologic sciences.

The Board of Early Career Affairs first worked with Dr. Holmes in the inaugural AMS Early Career Leadership Academy, 2018. The Board has invited Dr. Holmes to return to excite and engage a larger audience at the Early Career Conference on Sunday morning. Simultaneously, the Board of Women and Minorities invited Dr. Holmes to share her vision for a diverse, inclusive and equitable future at the 10th Coriolis Reception LGTBQ, allies and friends.

Dr. Holmes has spoken often on the relationships between science, race and poverty. She's excited to have the opportunity to lead as a queer woman speaking to the LGBTQ of Coriolis.
