500 Women Scientists

Atlanta Pod

NOTICE: As of 6/2022, the Atlanta pod is currently inactive. However, if you are interested in leading the charge to reactivate it, please contact the national 500 Women Scientists organization for information about becoming the executive coordinator!

Our mission is to connect and empower women in STEM and our supporters in the Atlanta area.

Our Atlanta pod is over 200+ members strong representing STEM and social scientists in the Atlanta area. We are postdocs, research scientists, science educators, faculty, and grad students from multiple universities, colleges, and research institutions. As a local pod, we advocate for diversity and inclusivity in the sciences, increased scientific literacy through public engagement, engagement in science policy, and empowering women in science in our community in Atlanta and the surrounding areas.
