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

Communicate the realities of the journey through early career, early family choices, mid-career, maturing a family, maturing a career

Meet to network and share stories and strategies on navigating a career in geoscience in and how to incorporate interests outside of work/family

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.
