AOGS Women’s Network Cell (AOGS-WNC)
- Build a resilient community that lifts all scientists and moves the geosciences forward.
- Cultivating leadership among female researchers.
At the 2019 AOGS conference, a group of women met to start the AOGS Women’s Network Cell (AOGS-WNC). They want to develop a group and are planning follow-up meetings at the AOGS 2022 virtual conference. Their basic premise is to improve participation of women at AOGS meetings, at all levels.
