NCAR Fellows-
   I've heard good feedback about this opportunity. Please consider  
or passing the announcement along to your colleagues. Note the 15 March

Begin forwarded message:
> This is a reminder regarding the ASCENT program.  Applications are  
> due MARCH 15!
> Dr. Linnea Avallone, Ms. Laura Edwards, and myself were recently  
> funded by the NSF ADVANCE program to create ASCENT.
> Atmospheric Science Collaborations and Enriching NeTworks (ASCENT)  
> is a program focusing on women in atmospheric science/meteorology  
> and is designed to initiate positive professional relationships  
> among female faculty of different ranks and postdoctoral  
> researchers. The program consists of a three-day summer workshop  
> with follow-up reunion events at major national meetings. While  
> networking with like-minded women scientists, participants will have  
> the opportunity to be involved in frank discussions to explore  
> specific promising practices toward eliminating the "leaky  
> pipeline", defined by the attrition of women at different stages in  
> their academic careers.
> ASCENT is now accepting applications for our first workshop.
> Our first workshop will be held in Steamboat Springs, Colorado from  
> June 15-17, 2009.
> Applications are DUE by MARCH 15.
> The program will be open for applications from junior female  
> scientists to participate in the workshop. Twenty junior scientists  
> will be selected each year based on enthusiasm for science, interest  
> in issues related to women in academic and professional settings,  
> and how they contribute to creating a diverse group, as described in  
> their applications. Due to the nature of this networking  
> opportunity, we encourage participation of pre-tenure faculty  
> members, early-career research scientists, and postdoctoral  
> researchers seeking faculty positions.
> You can now apply on-line at:
> http://www.ascent.dri.edu
> This web site will also provide you with more information about the  
> ASCENT program.
> Please contact me with any questions.
