Our AWIS chapter provides a much needed way to meet and connect with otherwomen in science, to discuss pesonal challenges, like working and being a mom, as well as providing a forum for reaching successful women who can act at mentors!

I have met some truly amazing women through my local AWIS chapter. I have made enduring friendships and found mentorship that provided invaluable support when I was laid off for lack of funding and searching for a job, just as the economy was coming to a screeching halt. Getting involved in my local chapter was one of the best things I ever did. I had to relocate for my new position but I am fortunate enough to still be within driving distance to stay involved with my formerly local AWIS chapter. When I meet other women in science I often find myself telling them about AWIS because my experience has been so great.

The Great!

I have been a part of the AWIS Chicago chapter for the last 2 years both as a participating member and eventually a board member. The networks I have made both within industry and academia through AWIS have lead me to both professional and personal growth. It has been great to work with other women and men in my field who share the same passion of progressing women within STEM fields.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being asked to Co-Chair an event with the Chicago Council on Science and Technology at Northwestern for all Chicago area women in STEM fields.

AWIS is the only organization to span across all of the STEM fields, and represent an interdisciplinary approach to issues of women in science. As a woman in science who is interested in many different fields, I believe this is essential to the success of the organization, both at the grassroots level, and in advocating for our issues in Congress.

The Great!

My personal and professional life, as a woman and as a scientist.

A college freshman in her 40's is not unheard-of, yet it is assumed I have an understanding of the intricacies of college and academic life that I did not possess. As a young teen, I had to quit high school to support my single-parent mother; now,through the support of AWIS, I know that I will succeed in my adult academic efforts because of the time and information the members give to each other. I learned about AWIS from a podcast by Dr. Kirsten Sanders and became a member immediately. Through the webinars AWIS has hosted, I have learned much about grant writing (getting a "Yes" takes time and effort, don't give up!) and how to find a job in the science field. AWIS helps familiarize me with the workings and lingo of the STEM fields and, through this familiarity, I gain confidence to continue my biochemistry degree, and I am realizing a long-time dream of achieving my college degree and transitioning to a career in the science field.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Developing skills and the confidence to use them.

AWIS is an organization dedicated to raising the status of women in science and bringing more women into the science field. The organization is extremely useful to facilitate networks among female scientists. Scientists aren't usually outgoing so AWIS provides a gentle way for women to reach out to other female and male scientists. AWIS's network promotes women's ability to climb the career ladder and hopefully, one day, achieve pay parity with male scientists.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The AWIS network allowed me to leave the scientific bench and join industry. It also helped me to get perform my job more efficiently as a government employee, but using the advice and knowledge of my AWIS peers.
