AWG's affiliation with other societies (American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Geological Society of America, American Geophysical Union, and American Geological Institute) expands the ability of AWG to make a difference in the professional status of women in geosciences.
Recently, AWG has been working together with other leading women groups to help fund and sponsor short courses and reception events for career development and networking at the GSA, AGU and AAPG conventions.
AWG provides opportunities for women to exercise their leadership skills at the chapter level, as chapter officers, or at the association level, as members of the AWG Board of Directors or the AWG Foundation Board of Directors, as well as in committee work.
AWG provides a free Resume Review Service for students and young professionals.
AWG and AWGF provide scholarships and awards for students and professionals at all stages of their careers to recognize their achievements.
