WOMEN OF WIND ENERGY
October 25, 2012
WoWE is a fantastic organization that promotes women in the wind industry, as well as inspiring young women to be involved in STEM fields. Members range from turbine techs and construction workers to scientists and consultants to executives at some of the top energy companies in the world. I am most proud of the Mentoring Program that the group hosts for young to mid-career women and the connection with KidWind, which teaches elementary school aged kids about the positive benefits of renewable energy.

ASSOCIATION FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE INC
March 23, 2011
As a women in science, whose career has taken her to industry (and not academia) I find AWIS to be a valuable resource that keeps me connected to current policies, advocacy happenings, and events. Also, I really enjoy how AWIS provides members with information about the history of the women's movement within STEM fields. Overall, this is one of the most useful professional organizations to which I belong.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My everyday life! I feel the affects of the advocacy work of AWIS when I meet other women leaders and managers. I use the knowledge provided by the organization through the website, webinars, magazine to negotiate salaries and to navigate the challenges of working in a male-dominated field.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Perhaps have a few more local chapters? Overall I really wouldn't make many changes.
Volunteer & I volunteer in various aspects of the organization.
