AWG stands with our fellow Black and BIPOC geoscientists.



AWG is committed to taking tangible steps to directly address the challenges of intersectionality within academia faced by women, gender non-binary people, and people of color. We are developing initiatives to actively combat systemic inequalities that contribute to the current racial disparity within the geosciences. As part of those initiatives, AWG has collected resources designed to encourage acknowledgment of our inherent biases and understanding what our fellow BIPOC geoscientists experience, and what we all can actively do to combat the systemic inequalities in the geosciences, science, and our society. Please stay tuned for additional initiatives we are planning to implement as an organization that will go beyond our previous efforts.

Professor Emerita B. Charlotte Schreiber passed away on 17 July 2020 after a brief illness.  Retired from Queens College CUNY since 1993, Dr. Schreiber remained professionally active until her death. She is most widely known for her groundbreaking work on Messinian evaporites in the Mediterranean Basin, on which she continued to work up through recent years. Other 21st century research ranged from Martian evaporites to Chinese travertines, from the Miocene of Lake Mead to the Devonian of Canada.  Her work inevitably involved interdisciplinary and international colleagues, many of whom she personally brought together to address new questions and ideas.
