Who we are

WOMEESA formed during the Inaugral Dorothy Hill Women in Earth Sciences Symposium (Nov 2017) identifying a need to bring together women in Earth and Environmental Sciences throughout Australasia.

 

Aim

  • To create a unified Australasian network of women working in Earth and Environmental Sciences in academia, government and industry

Objectives

  • Create a supportive network for all women in Earth and Environmental Sciences in Australasia

  • Develop new nodes in the region without current support and link to existing networks/societies

  • Facilitate greater collaboration between academia, government and industry in these fields

  • Provide role models of women in Earth and Environmental Sciences

  • Provide key support for women in the early stages of their career and those with carer responsibilities

  • Raise awareness of current gender equity issues

  • Develop strategies to support indigenous Australasians (in Australia, NZ and beyond)

  • Promote the importance of Earth and Environmental Science research and activities through social networks and the media

On 27 August 2018 WOMEESA became an Incorporated Association and a copy of our Constitution can be viewed here: WOMEESA Constitution
