Women in Geoscience and Engineering
The Women in Geoscience and Engineering Special Interest Community (WGE SIC) was established by EAGE to facilitate communication between women and to promote their active participation of this community in related activities.
“Being part of the EAGE Group helped me increase my network in a brand new and interesting direction. Sharing post, ideas, experience, solutions with the committee and others members of the group certainly had a huge impact on the way I am now envisioning my career and family life and making it all work in a great synergy!”
Caroline Le Turdu, WGE SIC Committee Chair
WGE SIC members cooperate to produce answers to questions or problems, to improve the understanding of particular topics and to help us communicate these items via social media channels, meetings or other type of events.
The mission of this group is to enable the exchange of knowledge and experience, and mutual support among members, related to:
- better understanding of WGE community expectations
- enabling advice between community members
- sharing career opportunities
- guidance on career development
- retention of women in the industry
