Earth Science Women's Network

Elsevier is proud to be once again working alongside the Earth Science Women's Network (ESWN), partnering in their events across this year's AGU.

  • Earth Science Women's Network Annual Networking Event
    Monday 11th December 6 – 9 PM, The Rusty Nail , 1102 Constance St.
    ESWN's signature annual event will be a great opportunity to meet colleagues and make new friends during the first day of the sessions! FREE, all are welcome, appetizers and cash bar.

  • AGU  Networking Reception for Early Career Female Scientists and Students
    Tuesday 12th December 6:15 – 8 PM, Hilton Riverside, 1st Floor, Grand Ballroom  – Suite CD
    Network with your peers at this event made especially for early career female scientists and students. Not-so-early-career women are also welcome! ESWN & AGU Sponsored Workshops

  • Navigating  the NSF System
    Wednesday 13th December 9 AM – 12 PM, MCCNO, Third Floor, Room 338-339
    This workshop is open to all AGU Fall  Meeting attendees and will be particularly helpful to graduate students, post-docs, researchers, and tenure-track faculty thinking about applying for  NSF funding. Critique sample text from past NSF proposals, meet in groups with program officers to know what they are looking for, and learn how to ask the right questions, give the right answers, and get funded.

  • Strategies for Attracting and Advancing a Diverse Geoscience Workforce
    Wednesday 13th December 2 – 4 PM, MCCNO, Third Floor, Room 338-339
    The goals of this workshop are to (1) identify elements from successful programs for attracting and advancing historically underrepresented Earth scientists at multiple career stages and (2) identify strategies that AGU and its members can enact to broaden the participation of a diverse membership and geoscience workforce. A panel presentation will be followed by small breakout roundtable discussions centred on topics related to various career stages and  professional tracks of interest.

  • Opportunities  Beyond Academia
    Wednesday 13th December 4 – 6 PM MCCNO, Third Floor, Room 338-339
    Thinking about a career outside of academia? It can often be difficult to get  help finding a job in a non-profit or government agency, within industry, or as  a consultant. A panel of scientists with experience outside of academia will share their "lessons learned" and answer your questions about how to find and  apply for jobs in policy, federal research labs, state agencies, NGOs, industry, and private enterprise.

Safe journey to all those traveling to the year's meeting, we hope you have an enjoyable and productive conference.
