AWG Association for Women Geoscientists
AWG, UC Davis Student Chapter
Our mission. From the National Chapter: "The Association for Women Geoscientists is an international organization devoted to enhancing the quality and level of participation of women in geosciences and to introduce girls and young women to geoscience careers."
Club membership. The AWG, UC Davis Student Chapter, is open to anyone who supports women in science (students, faculty, staff, etc), but our programming targets mainly undergraduate and graduate students.
Activities. Currently, our activities ranges from speaker panels, writing retreats and tutoring, a mentorship program, seminars, informal outreach talks and fundraisers. We are working on developing subject-based programming with a field component.
