AWIS actively promotes women in science and I feel that I get more impact per buck than most other professional societies that I belong to. They keep me informed of research on women and on STEM women, on our struggles in the workplace and on legislative issues that will impact us. They are strong advocates for us in Washington, helping me feel that my little voice, joined with thousands of other STEM women, gets heard. I've been honored to be named a Fellow of AWIS and this honor, and AWIS' unflagging efforts to network us all together, has helped open doors for me that wouldn't have otherwise. I'm a sustaining member but wish I could give more! I've taken their STEMinars and workshops and learned a lot of useful tactics to help balance work and the rest of my life. Thanks, AWIS!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

See to it that a sugar daddy or sugar mommy boosted their endowment!
