International Womens Day

MRS Celebrates International Women’s Day
March 8, 2020!

Please join us in celebrating women in the MRS Community for their achievements in materials science over the past year.

“We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. Let's all be #EachforEqual.”

 
If you know someone in the materials community who has received an important award, research recognition, or completed a recent accomplishment, please share the news with MRS members. MRS Bulletin will be featuring Movers & Shakers in the May issue, so email your suggestions by March 13 to Bulletin@mrs.org.
