We stand together to promote STEM education, to support each other in all aspects of our careers, and to advocate for a fact-based public dialogue.

As of January 2024, the Philly Pod has entered stasis. Our current coordinators are at capacity and so cannot lead the Pod into new adventures or activism at this time. We stand ready to support a new leader when one is ready to step up and take the lead. Contact Tanya (xanderfirefly @ gmail.com) or JoEllen (joellen.mcbride @ gmail.com) if you are interested. 

On October 6, 2023 The Philly Pod co-presented with the Phoenixville Pod at the American Philosophical Society's Women In Science: Opportunities Conference 😊

We, the Philly Pod of 500 Women Scientists, stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Black Lives Matter is about focus and not exclusion, and we support inclusion in all forms. In this time of reflection and catalyzing action, we have put together some resources. These resources are a way for you to help, not only with financial support, but to help educate yourself. We are at a pivotal moment, we need to lean in and make sweeping Social Justice change across this nation.
