ESIP Update ūüĆĄ New environmental justice collaboration

NASA Earth Data and ESIP have teamed up and are looking for an environmental justice subject matter expert. 

The mountain is always there.

This phrase reminds us that rest and celebration are as much a part of work as the trek and to-do lists. As ESIP collaboration areas gear up for the next stretch, let's take a moment to enjoy the view and celebrate a few high points.

ūüĆĄ For last Friday's¬†International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Amazon's blog featured Annie Burgess, Chelle Gentemann, and Ana¬†Pinheiro Privette.

ūüĆĄ The Royal Geographical Society's teaching resources¬†also drew up Dawn Wright as a data superhero. #WomenInScience

ūüĆĄ The year's first IT&I Tech Dive Webinar kicked off with¬†an overview of The National Map tool.¬†

ūüĆĄ Our Community Fellows' bios are up on the ESIP blog. As well as stories on wildfire data and our ESIP award winners.¬†
