GEOSCIENTISTS WITHOUT BORDERS (GWB)

Many places around the globe facing severe water shortages, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other hazards have benefited from the humanitarian efforts of geoscientists who have offered their specialized knowledge and technical skills to those in need. Geoscientists without Borders serves as a catalyst bringing these capable scientists together with communities to solve their problems. The program provides grant funding for these projects and assists geoscientists and their teams in collaborating with multidisciplinary and community-based partners.

  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
