Welcome to the Women in Ornithology Resource Group (WORG)

Listserv Discussion Group

In the fall of 1994, with the help of G.C. (Chuck) Banks at the National Biological Survey, WORGNET, a public electronic network for ornithologists was created. There are now 75 subscribers to WORGNET. We have found this to be an important vehicle for reaching researchers interested in the activities of WORG and for helping women who might not be able to regularly attend AOU meetings to feel connected to other ornithologists. In addition, WORGNET has facilitated discussion on issues in ornithology that are of particular interest, but not exclusively, to women. From some of the topics explored to date on WORGNET it is clear that there is a need to develop panel discussions or workshops at future AOU meetings to help address these issues in greater depth.
