Our annual networking event for ESWN members and friends at AGU! Light appetizers served with a cash bar and great conversation. Connect with old friends and meet new ones! There is no registration required — just show up and bring friends or colleagues who you’d like to connect with our ESWN community. Anyone and everyone who supports ESWN’s mission is welcome to attend the reception. The AGU networking reception is especially helpful for first time attendees to meet some friendly faces to know throughout the week.

Workshop: Strategies for Responding to Hostile Work Climates 

AGU Meeting

Monday, December 13, 2021, 11:00-12:30 CT

Location: Virtual

This interactive session will describe academic practices and institutional structures that allow for harassment, bullying and other hostile behaviors to persist, discuss initiatives to address harassment as research misconduct, and provide training in personal intervention strategies to protect and support targets of harassment. As a result of this session, participants will be able to identify: (1) different ways in which sexual and other types of harassment and bullying can manifest in research environments; (2) strategies for bystander intervention, and (3) resources to share with their home departments for cultural change. Led by members of the ADVANCEGeo Partnership with support from the Earth Science Women’s Network, Association of Women Geoscientists, and AGU. Links to attend this workshop will be available through the AGU Scientific Program.

Navigating the NSF System Workshop

AGU Meeting

Tuesday, December 14, 2021, 11:00-12:30 CT

Location: Virtual

How do you make your proposal as NSF-savvy as possible? How do you best describe your broader impacts? What is cutting edge in data management? How do you identify the best program for application? How do you access available education and outreach funds? There are always new initiatives starting at NSF, beyond core programs. How do you identify and apply for these opportunities? How can you design effective integrated research? Answer these questions and meet in small groups with Program Officers, get to know what they are looking for, and learn how to ask the right questions, give the right answers, and get funded! This workshop will include a presentation about NSF Funding (20 min), a panel discussion with NSF program officers from different GEO Divisions (30 min) and breakout rooms for small group discussions with different NSF program officers (40 min). The workshop is open to all AGU Fall Meeting attendees and will be particularly helpful to early-career to midcareer participants, especially graduate students, post-docs, researchers, and tenure-track faculty thinking about applying for NSF funding for the first time. Co-sponsored by the Earth Science Women’s Network and AGU Education. Links to attend this workshop will be available through the AGU Scientific Program.

A big thanks to our Fall Meeting Sponsors!
