Thanks to the Heising Simons Foundation for sponsoring a professional development retreat for women in physics and astronomy at Harvard. Thirty graduate students and postdocs from astronomy, physics, and applied physics spent three days together in Cape Cod, learning skills for daily writing, negotiation, and communication.

The retreat was organized by Prof. Jennifer Hoffman, who is a member of the HSF's Physics & Astronomy Leadership Council, which aims to increase the representation and success of women in physics and astronomy.
