May 2010: CSWA Town Hall: Designing a 21st Century Astronomy Career Track


To meet the challenge of designing a 21st century astronomy career track for men and women will require that issues concerning "female-friendly" and "family-friendly" workplaces be addressed. Flexible working hours and flexible "clocks" for promotion and tenure will be essential.

An introduction by CSWA Chair Joan T. Schmelz was followed by discussion and questions from the audience.
