Join Cal ACS and our partners for a free virtual networking event on February 27, 2024, 5:00 to 6:00 pm. To follow, there will be an in-person event at the Emeryville Public Market, co-hosted by the “Empowering Women in Organic Chemistry” Northern California chapter (EWOC). Held in conjunction with the IUPAC Global Women’s Breakfast (#GWB2024) and the U.N. Day of Women and Girls in Science, the goal of the GWB series is to establish an active network of people of all genders to overcome the barriers to gender equality in science. Over the last five years, more than 1500 GWB events have been held in 100 countries.

Register HERE for the Zoom event.

Register HERE for the in-person event, to follow at the Emeryville Public Market, 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

The theme of #GWB2024 is “Catalyzing Diversity in Science”. Groups from all types of science organizations from high schools, to science societies, universities, companies, governments and non-governmental organizations are invited to host events. Event leaders are encouraged to reach out and collaborate with organizations in different sectors and to include scientists from multiple disciplines.

Celebrating John Muir’s 186th birthday
and the 54rd Anniversary of Earth Day

Cal ACS will be there with hands-on chemistry, featuring the 2024 Earth Week theme,

Get a Charge out of Chemistry
Recárgate con la Química

The California Section will join numerous other community and educational organizations for the return of this Earth Day celebration to Martinez.  Look for the Cal ACS canopy, where visitors will discover how to build a battery like the one Alessandro Volta invented in 1799.  They can also try splitting water by electrolysis, using electricity from photovoltaic panels.  And, they can make their own UV light-detecting bracelet using photochromic beads.

If you can help out at the ACS booth, please contact Sushila Kanodia.  See you there!
