AGYA Working Groups
AGYA members have established six Working Groups so far. Each Working Group conducts periodic meetings throughout the year. Within the Working Groups, the members form strong ties to each other across disciplines and geographical background. They are the first point of entry into AGYA, providing identification and orientation to new members. Working Groups manage their own affairs, debate the big issues in their fields, and interact intensively. Find out more about the six AGYA Working Groups!
