Association for Women Geoscientists

Holding a stone


AWG was started in 1977 to address the continuing under-representation of women geoscientists in academia, government, and industry. The Association’s goals are to encourage the participation of women in the geosciences; to exchange educational, technical, and professional information; and to enhance the professional growth and advancement of women in the geosciences. AWG works to achieve these goals through support for undergraduate and graduate students, programs for professionals, and outreach to girls. Other activities benefit the geoscience profession and our broader society.

AWG is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization and professional association. We are affiliated, or associated, with other professional societies such as AGI, GSA, AAPG, AGU, etc. Membership is always open to all who support our goals. We encourage membership regardless of gender and we seek to be an inclusive organization.

AWG does not discriminate against qualified members of the University on the basis of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, gender, age, marital status, ability, or veteran status, and abides by the Non-Discrimination Policy set in place by The University of Texas at El Paso and the UT System.
