Safety Gram Live! Seminar Kicks Off Scripps California Green Feat
Scheduled for Thursday, April 7, noon to 1 PM, in the Beckman building Keck auditorium, the seminar will explore the environmental impact of research activities and how a "green process" can guide those efforts, explains Julio Giannotti, Scripps Research safety coordinator and Green Team member.

Presented by members of the Student Sustainability Initiative, the seminar also will feature academic and industrial case studies demonstrating green chemistry principles, the lifecycles of commonly used organic solvents, and practical eco-friendly measures for lab work.
An event highlight will be the announcement of the California campus single-stream recycling champion, determined by the highest overall recycling rate achieved among individual campus buildings during the month of March. The winner will be awarded the Keith McKeown Memorial Green Feat Award, named after the late vice president of communications and public relations and founding chair of the institute's Green Initiative.
Details on additional Green Feat activities are available on the Green Initiative webpage.
California Campus NWiS Coffee Hour Highlights Status of Women in Science
The 1999 Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) study investigated perceived patterns of inequitable resource allocation between women faculty and their male colleagues on the MIT campus. A just-released follow-up, the Report on the Status of Women Faculty in the Schools of Science and Engineering at MIT, examines the consequences of actions prompted by the original study.
Peet's coffee and snacks will be provided at the event. NWiS encourages the participation of both male and female colleagues and all faculty members.
Further information on NWiS activities on the California campus can be found at the organization's webpage.
