The SEG Women's Network is a community hosted by the SEG Women's Network Committee. Created in 2011, the Women's Network raises awareness of and finds solutions for the challenges women encounter in applied geophysics.
Our objectives are:
- Grow a community for mutual support among female SEG members,
- Encourage more participation and leadership by women in applied geophysics worldwide,
- Enhance recruiting and retention of women in the profession and mentoring of students and early career professionals, and
- Elevate awareness of the value of a diverse workforce in the profession.
Please join to help the Women's Network achieve its goals. It is through your participation and volunteering that SEG and applied geophysics can grow into the future.
As part of the 2017 SEG WNC goals, which were in part driven by member feedback from the SEG Annual Meeting WNC activities, the SEG Women's Network has begun development of a mentoring portal for female SEG members.
While the mentoring portal is under construction, please feel free to explore some of the SEG members who have agreed to serve as mentors. Please also take the following mentor or mentee surveys to facilitate effective pairing.
