Fifth Annual Women in the Geosciences Day

Please join the Association for Women Geoscientists (AWG) in celebrating the fifth annual Women in the Geosciences Day - Thursday, October 17 - during Earth Science Week 2013! Women in the Geosciences Day offers you a chance to share the excitement and advantages of geoscience careers with women of all ages, especially those early in their education.

What can you do? If you’re an educator, invite a female geoscientist to speak in your classroom or institution. If you’re a female geoscientist, visit a local school or volunteer at a science center. Organize a scout event, lead a 4-H field trip, or hold a special “Take Your Daughter to Work Day” focusing on the geoscience workplace. No matter who you are, you can help show young women what it means to be a geoscientist.

Watch for additional information online in the coming weeks at Earth Science Week (http://www.earthsciweek.org) and AWG (http://www.awg.org), where you can also find information on AWG’s scholarships for women pursuing geosciences education and careers as well as support for female geoscientist lecturers in classrooms. Have a great Women in the Geosciences Day!
