ESWN offers professional development workshops at major geologic conferences around the world and at ESWN-hosted workshops throughout the United States.

All workshops are free. Half-day workshops at conferences (e.g. AGU, GSA, EGU, etc.) are open to all registered attendees, while our 3-day workshops require an application from ESWN members.

Networking Receptions

Reception at AGU 2014
2013 Networking Reception for Early Career Female Scientists & Students (co sponsored by AGU)

In 2013 we partnered with AGU for their second annual Early Career Female Scientists and Students event. AGU’s president Carol Finn, CEO Christine McEntee, and President-Elect Margaret Leinen will be convening the reception, so this is a great opportunity to share your enthusiasm about AGU’s support for women scientists and mingle with other ESWN members.  ESWN Board members Emily Fischer, Erika Marin-Spiotta, Becca Barnes, Meredith Hastings, and Tracey Holloway were on hand to welcome people and discuss ESWN with new, potential members.

2012 AGU Networking Reception (co-sponsored by AWIS)

Our annual networking event for women at AGU! Light appetizers were  served, free pool, and a cash bar. Old friends or met new ones. This year, we had a healthy mix of ESWN members AND AWIS members, this networking opportunity was open to all women at AGU.

It was especially helpful for first time attendees to meet some friendly faces to know throughout the week. They gpt a head-start on dinner (or apps for dinner at the reception!).
