Women in Science panel: How to use Twitter to advance your career and make an impact
June 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
More and more Twitter has become a living archive, with scientists using Twitter to share their research, accomplishments, and awards as well as establish collaborations, discuss issues that affect scientists and trainees, learn about job opportunities and beyond. WiS is hosting a panel and workshop about how scientists can use Twitter to advance their careers, increase their research visibility and impact, and advocate for social justice and other issues that are important to them.
