Why should I join, and how can I get involved?

There are many women’s geoscience groups in existence today. They have formed grassroots organizations within universities, companies, business sectors, societies, cities, and online communities. These groups exist not only to connect women within geoscience networks, but also to have a visible seat at the table and speak with a collective voice about issues relevant to their members. It is that collective voice that advocates for you in your current or future profession. A voice that because of your membership is heard and influences policy.
