In 2017, GeoWomen of Calgary was voted in by the CSPG Board of Directors as a CSPG committee.  Our motivation is to help women embarking on a career in geoscience in Calgary to get from new graduate to retiring at the top of your game.

We meet to network and share stories & strategies on navigating a career in geoscience in Calgary.

Anyone in the geoscience and energy community in Calgary is welcome.  We will make an effort to focus on topics of interest to women.  To showcase the achievements of women in the geoscience and energy community of Calgary.  And to both inspire and educate.  We aim to appeal to a broad range of experience levels, from women starting their geoscience careers in large or small companies, women in mid-career and women late in their careers.

The realities are that the numbers of women geoscientists drop as their careers progress. Women aren’t as likely to progress into technically higher levels, management or the board of directors in any size company.  If we get together and share knowledge and strategies perhaps this could change.
