Join a Peer Network!


One reason why it is especially important for women and minorities to form their own networks in science is that having a network gives them a place to reject outdated ideas of what a successful culture of science entails. Additionally, the flexibility and informality of network-based mentoring allows for women to engage in mentoring in a way that best fits their personal needs.

“ESWN gives me confidence in my abilities because I hear of others like me that are succeeding despite problems similar to mine. It provides a community and I feel I can address issues openly to get and give advice.”  -Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN) member-
