Women in Earth Science Career Panel @ Cleveland Park Library

We hosted a Career Panel at the Cleveland Park DC Public Library in February as part of our initiative to provide more career development opportunities for young professionals and students. Our panelists included Dr. Emma Locatelli (AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow), Dr. Lynn Wingard (Research Geologist & Project Chief with the USGS), Ms. Robin Petrusak (Petroleum Geologist with Advanced Resources International), and Ms. Laura Szymanski (GSA Science Policy Fellow). The panel was moderated by Madeline Shaffer. We had a very lively discussion that covered a wide variety of topics, including challenges in the workplace, the importance of maintaining geological collections, how to get started in science policy, recommended practices for job applying/searching, and general advice for those with growing careers. Our chapter received excellent feedback for the event, and we look forward to hosting another in the next year!

The Association for Women Geoscientists (AWG) is an internationally renowned non-profit organization that encourages the participation of women in earth science. Our DMV chapter is focused on connecting generations, encouraging diversity, empowering student/early-career geologists, and educating the public. Both women and men are welcome to join us and become part of DC’s experienced, diverse geological community.
