Women in Coastal Geoscience and Engineering (WICGE)
Women in Coastal Geoscience and Engineering (WICGE) is a global network of women working in coastal geoscience and engineering across academia, industry and government. Our aim is to inspire, support, and celebrate women at all stages of their careers through networking, mentoring, and identifying opportunities to grow. To find out more, please visit our website: http://womenincoastal.org/ where you can view our committee, members, and join the network. You can also follow us on Twitter @WomeninCoast (https://twitter.com/WomeninCoast).
At the International Coastal Symposium (ICS) held in Sydney (Australia) in March 2016, a survey was conducted by WICGE network members at the Universities of Wollongong, Macquarie, and Sydney. Initial findings indicate that this survey is an instructive endeavor and we have expanded the short survey into a digital format. We would greatly appreciate your participation in this survey, which will not take long and will help us to continue our research
with the following aims:
· Gain a profile of the perspectives of people working in coastal geoscience and engineering on their experiences and views regarding gender inequality in the field coastal geoscience and engineering.
· Gather information (through open ended questions) on experiences or observations of gender inequality within coastal geosciences and engineering, suggestions for practical steps to address perceived or real gender inequality in the field of coastal geosciences and engineering.
· Acquire primary qualitative research data to be included in published material that will promote the WICGE network. Current target outlets include The Conversation and the WICGE website.
The survey, which takes less than 5 minutes to complete, can be accessed at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FLQHV5Q
