Workshop: Role of Women in Weather and Climate Sciences


Workshop on the role of Women in Weather and Climate Sciences  (W3CS)

The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM) is a premier institute under the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), Govt of India, in weather and climate sciences. IITM has made remarkable achievements since its inception and has celebrated its 61st anniversary in 2022. The accomplishment of IITM is outstanding in the monsoon forecast at different scales, observations of tropical clouds, urban air pollution assessment and projections, and above all, its participation with a new earth system model in the IPCC. 

The history of IITM is closely linked to that of the India Meteorological Department (IMD), where Legendary women scientists such as Ms. Anna Mani have worked and led a fully-fledged atmospheric instrumentation development group. After that, many were inspired by her work and other women leaders in diverse fields who followed in their footsteps to make a mark in the weather and climate sciences. This workshop is organized to celebrate in empowering, enhancing, and enlightening women in these sciences and their connection with other fields. The Diamond jubilee of IITM gives a special occasion to organize such a workshop. The foundation laid by leading ladies will be cherished and recognized. 

The workshop will have invited speakers who can deliver motivational speeches for the younger generation, bring new knowledge about opportunities, and discuss communication and networking skills to advance their understanding and pursue leadership in diverse fields.
