ASSOCIATION FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE INC
May 26, 2010
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.
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.
