The Geological Society of America
As an international scientific society, GSA serves members in academia, government, and industry around the world. Since 1888, GSA’s meetings, publications, and programs have enhanced the professional growth of geoscientists and fostered geoscience stewardship and service. GSA encourages cooperative research and public dialogue on geoscience issues and supports all levels of earth-science education.
American Geophysical Union
AGU supports 130,000 enthusiasts to experts worldwide in Earth and space sciences. Through broad and inclusive partnerships, AGU aims to advance discovery and solution science that accelerate knowledge and create solutions that are ethical, unbiased and respectful of communities and their values. Our programs include serving as a scholarly publisher, convening virtual and in-person events and providing career support.
The International Association of Hydrogeologists
The International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH/AIH) is a scientific and educational charitable organisation for scientists, engineers, water managers and other professionals working in the fields of groundwater resource planning, management and protection. Founded in 1956, it has grown to a world-wide membership of more than 4000 individuals.
Association for Women Geoscientists
AWG is committed to taking tangible steps to directly address the challenges of intersectionality within academia faced by women, gender non-binary people, and people of color. We are developing initiatives to actively combat systemic inequalities that contribute to the current racial disparity within the geosciences. As part of those initiatives, AWG has collected resources designed to encourage acknowledgment of our inherent biases and understanding what our fellow BIPOC geoscientists experience, and what we all can actively do to combat the systemic inequalities in the geosciences, science, and our society. Please stay tuned for additional initiatives we are planning to implement as an organization that will go beyond our previous efforts.
