Hello WICGE-members!

Finally! We now have a working system with which we can communicate with our registered members.When you register online you are automatically added to a database and then we use MailChimp to send you regular e-mails and newsletters. This system does not allow for replies directly to the list BUT you can always contact us through wicgae@gmail.com or admin@womenincoastal.org

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING?

  • We have been getting the website going and have published a few blog posts. Please make sure that you follow our blog so you don't miss any of the posts.
  • As we are scientists and engineers we need to support our cause with data. Aside from the survey, we are gathering data on gender balance in Coastal Engineering and Geosciences. We are slowly going through societies, networks, conferences and journals.
  • We contacted and got positive responses from a couple of conferences/events with all-male panels/committees
  • Have you completed our survey? Please do! and share the link with your networks so we get as many answers as possible! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FLQHV5Q
  • Please consider writing a blog post. We are particularly interested in positive and inspiring stories but if you need to have a rant, you are most welcome! Feel free to contact anyone in the WICGE committee and we can publish your story with your name or anonymously.
  • Any other ideas? Get in touch with one the committee!
  • We are looking for conference mentors-  would you like to help out some early career women attending their first (or second or third) conference? you will just need to meet up with her, say hello and introduce her to as many people as you can.
  • Are you hosting a coastal conference next year? Let's talk about organising a WICGE event!
  • We are looking for sponsors so we can start having activities, scholarships, prizes etc. Can you help us finding financial support?
And this is all for now! thank you for your support and help us spread the word! Please tell your networks about us, forward them this e-mail and encourage people to join us

Best wishes from the WICGE committee.
