AAUW of North Carolina invites you to hear from meteorologist Karin Gleason in the third program of our new virtual series.
This nonpartisan session will provide information about climate change and the need for mitigation and adaptation to address the future for our children, grandchildren and generations to come.
Karin is a climate scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations’ National Centers for Environmental Information, which is located in Asheville, North Carolina. She is an outstanding STEM example to our girls and young women about the reality of being successful in a male-dominated scientific field.
