Women's History Month: Women In Science

Women in science March is Women's History Month, so this week we're pairing notable events in women's history with a related tip that you can use whether you're female or male.

Events: In 1903, physicist and chemist Marie Curie became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize. In 1962, biologist and ecologist Rachel Carson published the influential Silent Spring. In 1977, primatologist Jane Goodall founded the Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education and Conservation.

Tip: If you're a student or pondering a career change, consider channeling your energies toward environmental science. If you already work in the sciences, put your knowledge to planetary good by working in a field that helps preserve the earth.
