The Working Group (WG) of IAU Junior Members (JMs) focuses on topics that are crucial to early career astronomers across the globe. This includes careers, teaching, mobility, wellbeing, financial security, transparency and diversity. JMs represent the majority of active astronomers worldwide, which represent the future of the field, but also provide an invaluable influx of skilled workers to all branches of society. For more information about us, we invite you to visit our homepage:
