Remember Your Start In Earth & Environmental Sciences? Now It The Time To Reconnect

For those progressed in their career, remember back when you were studying and you searched for a positive group of people to support you in your studies?

This is the same situation for current students – they are wanting to build their network and are looking for industry connections.

For those starting their career, you do not want to miss this Symposium… it’s a mix of education, learning, hearing the highs and challenges and, most importantly, you create connections that will help you with your career.

The Symposium provides great career development and networking opportunities for geoscientists in academia, industry and government. It is not a “normal conference” – it is science is presented from personal perspectives, and we have very exciting panel discussions, along with the chance for in-depth networking and engagement with leaders in your field.



We already have some amazing speakers confirmed… a teaser of these can be seen below. More to be confirmed soon!

  • Dr Karen Evans, Principal Research Scientist, Oceans and Atmosphere, CSIRO, UN Ocean Decade, Planning Executive Committee, CSIRO
  • Dr Melanie Finch, Lecturer in Geoscience, James Cook University
  • Marian Myers, Independent Geological Consultant
  • Dr Jessica Stromberg, Research Scientist, CSIRO
  • A/Prof Caroline Tiddy, Associate Professor in Geosciences, Future Industries Institute, University of South Australia



The top 5 benefits people received from attending the 2019 Symposium were:

  • Networking and meeting new connections
  • Collaboration
  • Learning from presenters and attendees
  • Empowerment
  • Inspiration



Don’t just take our word for it. – below is some feedback from previous attendees:

  • I think the Symposium was amazing. The perfect mix between technical, and inspiring experiences
  • An amazing conference – one of the best I have been to. I walked away proud to be a geoscientist and confident of the ever-increasing opportunities for women in Earth Sciences
  • Best conference ever! I feel refreshed as a scientist – as a woman – as a professional – it’s been a very long time since I felt this comfortable being a women in geoscience (if ever)
  • Overall I was left with a greater sense of self belief, motivation to continue to develop my career, and a sense that the skills and technical abilities I now possess are transferrable to many other areas of the earth science field
