Session description:

This session is aimed to evaluate the involvement of women in geosciences and to enhance their involvement in the future by means of success stories and role models. The event is planned to be widely advertised among different branches of Geosciences community. Moreover, all EGU participants will be invited to take part in the discussion.
We invite talks related to female activity in geosciences and its analysis without any specific limit to the topic. We equally welcome talks related to gender equality in research, engineering and industry. Welcome are also gender dimensions in geosciences related challenges.

The session was very well attended and was also advertised in EGU today, a selected leaflet of the General Assembly.
