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.

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.
