We look forward to welcoming you along with guest speakers, and Association for Women in Science’s own, Dr. Heather Metcalf, Director of Research and Analysis, and Dorian Russell, Policy Intern on Wednesday, November 2nd.

AWIS LIVE: why we still need an
association for women in science

Join long-time AWIS member Dr. Isabel Escobar and AWIS Director of Community and Stakeholder Engagement Sheri Potter as they share proactive strategies to connect with the AWIS mission, impact change as an AWIS member, and access benefits that will strengthen you as a professional. 

Dr. Isabel Escobar serves on the AWIS National Chapters Committee and has experience in a myriad of leadership roles at regional and local levels. As a leading scientist in developing polymeric membrane materials for water treatment and reuse operations and professor of chemical and materials engineering at the University of Kentucky, she’s been the PI of numerous research projects.
