AAS SGMA Committee Openings

Rolf Danner Jet Propulsion Laboratory / CALTECH

The AAS Committee for Sexual-Orientation and Gender Minorities in Astronomy (SGMA) has several openings for full 3-year terms (starting June 2021). Please contact Rolf Danner, SGMA chair, if you are willing to lend your voice to promote equality for sexual-orientation and gender minorities within our profession, including those identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, questioning, or queer. Individuals at any career stage are invited to apply and nonmembers may apply as long as they become AAS members if selected. Committee members are expected to support and promote the goals of the committee and to participate in monthly Zoom meetings.

SGMA seeks diverse representation to represent the full demography of the AAS, and so astronomers of all genders, sexes, career stages, races, ethnicities, neurodiverse or disability status, and sexual orientations are encouraged to apply. The committee especially encourages people of color to apply.

Visit the SGMA website for more information. If you are interested, please respond by 28 April 2021.
