AWG is starting up a new member highlight blog that you can find on our webpage as well as in our E-newsletter. Check it out each month to see the awesome things AWG members are doing. If you are interested in being featured, or know someone who should be, please email Mackenzie Cremeans.
If so, AWG will be co-sponsoring two events with AGU and the Earth Science Women's Network (ESWN). We encourage you to attend and participate! And don't forget to check out our booth (#134)!
1. Network Reception for Early Career Female Scientists and Students
Tuesday, December 15th 7-9 PM
Network with you peers at this event made especially for early career female scientists and students. Created in partnership with the Association for Women Geoscientists (AWG) and the Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN), this reception will be hosted by Executive Director/CEO of AGU Chris McEntee, AGU President Margaret Leinen, and AGU President-Elect Eric Davidson.
2. Town Hall Discussion: Forward Focused Ethics - What is the Role of Scientific Societies in Responding to Harassment and Other Workplace Climate Issues?
Wednesday, December 16th 12:30-1:30 PM. Moscone South, Room 102.
This session will provide information on lessons learned from recent research on the prevalence of sexual harassment in the scientific community, and discuss examples of institutional and individual responses. This will be an interactive session, and will seek input from participants on suggested actions for the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and other scientific societies in helping to address and correct these issues. This town hall session is jointly sponsored by the AGU, the Association for Women Geoscientists (AWG), and the Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN).
AWG's theme for 2015-16 is Recognizing Women in Geoscience. There are thousands of women in the geosciences today, both students and professionals, who deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments. Let's work together this year to take the time to nominate someone you know who is deserving of recognition for their accomplishments - or better yet, self nominate yourself for all of your achievements! Join or renew your 2015-16 membership today and RECOGNIZE your accomplishments with AWG.
