1. What is the WORMS' Book Club?
This book club was created to provide a space for members in WORMS, and INFORMS in general, a space to openly share and discuss the opportunities and challenges, and how we can support one another and particularly women in OR/MS. We will read books that are (including but not limited to) navigating the workplace, negotiation, and developing skills and perspectives that are centered around building a fulfilling career and personal life.
2. Who can join the book club?
All INFORMS members are welcome to join, though we strongly encourage you to be a member of WORMS as well. Note that WORMS is open to individuals of all gender identities.
3. Will the book club require a lot of time?
This book club is created to support you! Therefore, we will not require members to complete specific tasks at specific times. The book club is 100% asynchronous. However, we do suggest a "schedule" to move forward and to have a focus on certain topics/books at a time. Our schedule also proposes reading materials in very digestible size, so there is no need to worry!
4. How do we communicate?
After signing up (link above), you will receive an invitation to join our Slack channel. This will be our main communication channel with members of the club.
