ESWN is an organization dedicated to career development, peer mentoring and community-building for women in the geosciences. We need your support in order to continue helping women scientists around the world.
"Do not live someone else's life and someone else's idea of what womanhood is. Womanhood is you. Womanhood is everything that's inside of you."
Why should you support ESWN?
Engaging more women in science opens doors of opportunity and equity for women around the world. Your support for ESWN will help women succeed in advanced scientific research and education. Funding will be used to help women overcome barriers to advancement – from more effective networks, to practical scientific and professional skills, to changing public perceptions and the scientific culture in a way that ensures women’s contributions are recognized, valued and promoted.
Having more women in science improves our research and makes our economy stronger. Studies show that greater gender diversity produces higher quality science, as new ideas, insights and perspectives strengthen our ability to discover and innovate. In the U.S., women make up nearly half the workforce, but represent less than one quarter of the workers in scientific fields. ESWN activities inspire women to enter, advance and succeed in scientific careers. With our focus on earth science, ESWN members are at the front-line of research on natural hazards, energy, climate, environmental pollution, food and water security, and environmental sustainability.
