BENEFITS OF JOINING A CHAPTER OR AFFILIATE GROUP

As an interdisciplinary organization, AWIS offers a rare opportunity for women in STEM to meet professionals from other fields. Women in STEM are frequently isolated from each other in their working environments. By joining an AWIS chapter or affiliate group, such women will experience the rapport and camaraderie born of shared activities and mutual respect.
