Welcome to PWiGS!

The primary mission of the Princeton Women in GeoSciences (PWiGS) initiative is to increase the retention and boost the morale of women in the Earth Sciences through the development of an active peer network and the fostering of mentorship. Ultimately, PWiGS strives to create a support system for female scientists at all career levels that values academic achievement and satisfaction, promotes work-life balance, and initiates positive conversations about both.

We were founded by early career scientists in the GEO and AOS programs at Princeton, and we aim to increase networking and career support among women in geosciences at Princeton at all levels of study and career. Some of our activities include:

  • Peer mentoring
  • The PWiGS visiting lecture series and associated career chats with prominent scientists
  • Social activities
  • Professional Development activities
