Coriolis Reception

Coriolis Reception

Monday, 24 January 2022, 7:00 - 8:30 PM Central | Virtual 

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) & the Board on Representation, Accessibility, Inclusion, and Diversity (BRAID) are proud to announce the 13th Annual Coriolis reception, which will be held virtually in conjunction with the 2022 AMS Annual Meeting.

This reception celebrates the AMS lesbian–gay–bisexual–transgender–queer (LGBTQ) community and their allies and provides opportunities to mentor, network, and connect with individuals who share common professional and personal interests. Students and professionals at all stages of their careers as well as their relatives are welcome to attend and participate.

This year's reception will feature opening remarks from Judge Steven Kirkland, the first openly gay elected district judge in Texas and an advocate for LGBT rights.  Judge Kirkland's biography can be found at the bottom of this page. The reception will be held on Gather, which will provide the ability to casually mingle in a virtual space with new and old friends.
