Celebrating Women’s History Month

Author: Emily Mixon (PhD expected 2023) on behalf of GGSA, GeoPath, and AWG. 

Although socially distant due to COVID-19, Geobadgers still celebrated 2020 Women’s History Month by sharing some digital highlights of the fantastic female scientists in our department. The three highlight videos (each of a different graduate student) are shared below! We are deeply grateful to PhD student Ethan Parrish for shooting and editing the footage, and we’re looking forward to sharing more community highlights of geoscientists of varying identities and backgrounds from this series in the future.

If you’d like to keep up with women in science throughout the year, check out our local AWG chapter, the Earth Science Women’s Network, or 500 Women Scientists for info, activities, and inspiration for women and allies alike!
