Careers at AWIS
The Association for Women in Science (AWIS), founded in 1971, is the leading organization that advocates on behalf of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to achieve equity and full participation of women in all disciplines and across all employment sectors. We achieve this impact through membership, an extensive network of 100,000 stakeholders, primary research, advocacy, career partnerships. You can learn more about our history and the breadth of our impact on our history page.
AWIS is a small staff association with 10 full-time employees and an approximately $2 million annual budget. We are a primarily virtual organization, with a headquarters office based in Washington, D.C.
Our vision is that as a result of the work we do, women in STEM will be:
- Compensated fairly and without discrimination;
- Advanced equitably and without bias;
- Respected and recognized for their scientific achievements;
- Exposed to successful role models in leadership positions; and
- Able to achieve optimum work/life integration.
