Women in Graduate Science had a fundraiser at Yogurt Extreme in August. I don’t know why I didn’t post this when I first wrote it.
WGS (which my phone calls WIGS, isn’t it adorable?) had a meeting where they pumped us full of pizza, then told us about this fundraiser. They get 25% of all purchases! Then they put together STEM outreach programs and ways for us to meet and interrogate women with Real Jobs in the Sciences. I like an excuse to stuff my face with yoghurt, and I do my best to support this excellent organization. So I said I WILL BRING ALL THE PEOPLE to eat yogurt.
I handed out little postcard flyers…and I did this.
Corkboards are pretty empty in the summer. After completely reorganizing the boards & recycling the old flyers, I put these up. And then I looked at all the bounty of thumb tacks my actions had produced, and continued to be a nutjob avoiding her thesis. There was more, but I didn’t record all of my shame.
