The Society of Exploration Geophysics (SEG) Women’s Network is a community hosted by the SEG Women’s Network Committee (WNC). Created in 2011, the Women’s Network raises awareness of—and finds solutions for—the challenges women encounter in applied geophysics.


Our objectives are:

  1. Grow a community for mutual support among female SEG members
  2. Encourage more participation and leadership by women in applied geophysics worldwide
  3. Enhance recruiting and retention of women in the profession and mentoring of students and early career professionals
  4. Elevate awareness of the value of a diverse workforce in the profession


As part of the 2017 WNC goals, which resulted in part from member feedback at the SEG Annual Meeting, the Women’s Network developed a mentoring portal. That mentoring portal is Mentoring365, and is available to all current SEG members. You can apply to serve as a mentor or be mentored at
