Staying afloat in a sea of opportunity: an exciting day of workshops and talks all about pursuing a career in marine science!

About this Event

This event welcomes all cis and trans women, as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centers on the experiences of women.

First, thank you for your patience over the last six months as we have planned, and re-planned our SWMS “Spring” Symposium. We are excited that we have decided on a virtual symposium date of December 5, 2020. This one-day event will highlight incredible female leaders in the field of marine science, build professional development, and facilitate mentorship and networking through keynote speakers, panel discussions, and breakout sessions.

Since many of you have registered for the previously planned event in March, we wanted to provide updates regarding refunds, t-shirts, and getting involved with the new virtual symposium! Rest assured, we may be gathering from our living rooms, offices, or kitchen tables, but we are working hard to put together an incredible event that will provide all the same benefits as previous years.

For those of you who have already registered, or if you want to register for the first time, you will use the same EventBrite page: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/uri-swms-spring-symposium-2020-were-gonna-need-a-bigger-boat-tickets-91911825745. You can request a refund for your previous registration (perks of a virtual conference - it is free!) and/or sign up to register for the event! If you’d like to keep your previous registration and donate your registration payment to SWMS so that we can provide even better compensation for our speakers, then you don’t have to change a thing! Then, once we have a finalized schedule we will be sending out sign-ups to all who have registered for the breakout sessions and panel discussions.

If you’d like to get involved with the Symposium (planning, moderating sessions, if you have suggestions for virtual events or need accommodations), please e-mail uriswms@gmail.com.

p.s. We are planning ways for locals to pick up t-shirts & mugs that were ordered and swag from McLane labs, if you’re NOT local (driving distance) and want us to send you your shirt, please e-mail uriswms@gmail.com and we’ll figure out a way to get it to you :)
