Speaker: Lou Strolger, STScI Abstract: For nearly two decades the Hubble Space Telescope has been heavily used to locate supernovae in high redshift environments, with the primary goal of improving constraints on the nature of dark energy. Along the way we have made observations on the nature of supernovae themselves, and clues to their elusive progenitor mechanisms. From complete volumetric supernova rate histories, that now extend to z > 2, we find type Ia supernova delay-time distributions are consistent with... More »

Imposter syndrome is something that many high achieving people experience, and it can lead stress and impede people from reaching their full potential. Imposter syndrome can be particularly difficult for people from underrepresented groups who are working in predominantly white and predominantly male STEM environments. This experiential workshop will provide a supportive space for Fermilab employees to understand imposter syndrome, discuss their experiences related to imposter syndrome, engage in a visioning exercise, and learn and begin to practice strategies to...

The Inclusivity Journal Club meets ~monthly to discuss academic literature pertaining to inclusivity, diversity, and equality in STEM fields. This month, Corinne Mills will be leading a discussion on Sensoy and DiAngelo's "We are all for diversity, but... : How Faculty Hiring Committees Reproduce Whiteness and Practical Suggestions for How They Can Change". Here's a link to the paper: https://ocufa.on.ca/assets/Sensoy-DiAngelo-Diversity-Hiring-Article.pdf For connection information, please contact dbowring@fnal.gov More »
