AGU geoscience workforce issues: Call for abstracts

from American Geophysical Union and AEG

While the number of students earning degrees in the geosciences has increased slightly in the last few years, the number of professionals leaving the workforce has increased more rapidly. With a projected increased in the number of positions available to geoscientists, the difference between the supply trained geoscience professionals and the demand for their services is expected to grow substantially in the next decade. This session on geoscience workforce issues explores issues affecting the supply of geoscientists including general demography, increasing gender equity in many fields and a persistent lack of diversity caused by small numbers of students from underserved groups entering the field.

If you are interested in submitting an abstract on the subject, the deadline is Aug. 6. More information can be found here. Inquire about Session ID #1565. more
