Earth Science Women's Network

An international peer-mentoring network of women in the Earth Sciences, many of whom are in the early stages of their careers. Our mission is to promote career development, build community, provide opportunities for informal mentoring and support, and facilitate professional collaborations. 

The Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN) is an organization dedicated to career development, peer mentoring and community building for women in the geosciences. We have over 2000 members worldwide, spanning large research universities, small liberal-arts colleges, government agencies, and research organizations in the U.S. and more than 50 countries. Membership has grown through grass-roots member networking and includes upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, professionals in a range of environmental fields, scientists working in federal and state governments, post-docs, junior and senior academic faculty and scientists.
