ABOUT

Motivation

Providing space for women in geoscience, whose level of experience varies from new graduate to retiring at the top of their career, to meet and share experiences.

What we do

  • Organize monthly lunch hour Speaker Series with a focus on leadership, mentoring and self development.
  • Communicate the realities of the journey through early career, family choices, re-engagement, mid-career, maturing a family & career.
  • Meet to network and share stories and strategies for navigating a career in geoscience, incorporating interests outside of work/family.

Who would benefit

Women just launching on their geoscience careers, those in mid-career with large or small companies, women later in their careers

The Realities

The reality is that the number of women geoscientists drop as their careers progress. Women rarely progress into management or technically high levels in any size company. If we get together and share knowledge and strategies perhaps this could change.
