We invite you to attend and participate in an interactive online panel discussion with 4 earth science professionals who will discuss career development at Chevron. The panelists will share their experiences as females in the industry and discuss drivers for their career success while developing technical and leadership capabilities. They will share their perspective on the journey in their careers from their first choice to enter the oil and gas industry to multiple years into their careers and how this managed at Chevron. University participants will have the opportunity to interact with the panelists through an online portal.
Our intention is to demystify the process of career development at Chevron, while motivating female scientists to pursue a career in the oil and gas industry. This event is co-hosted by the Chevron Women’s Employee Network whose mandate is to work towards “Accelerating progress for women in Chevron by promoting an inclusive culture and offering opportunities for all employees to grow personally and professionally”
We hope that everyone has had an excellent summer and is ready to start off the school year. We will be hosting our first General Meeting on September 16th, 2019 at 5:15 PM, and welcome anyone that is interested to join!
Add our calendar to your google calendar to stay up to date and to join in on AWG events throughout the semester. We will be hosting a number of events, including breakfasts with colloquium speakers, social events (like trips to the cidery and hiking!), write nites, brown bag lunches, community outreach, and more!

Support the Penn State AWG field camp scholarship by purchasing t-shirts, mugs, stickers, and more! We will be selling AWG merchandise at colloquium and all AWG events. If you are not able to purchase in person, order from our new Etsy store! We have just released new mugs and t-shirts with a brand new design.
mugs: the perfect accessory to your morning meetings, and the eco-friendly way to fill up on coffee whenever you need.
t-shirts: the most effective way to share your style. Look at that sweet block model on the front.
buffs: pretend you’re on Survivor and wear in the field. Perfect as a headband, a neck warmer, or as a general sun shield. Be like Perri, and it will help you dig holes!
stickers and buttons: share your love for AWG at all times– attach to your water bottle, backpack, laptop, or drone case.
Each swag purchase helps to support the field camp scholarship. Share broadly!
