Welcome to the AWIS Chicago Chapter
The goals of AWIS Chicago Chapter are to provide opportunity for communication among women in science, promote equal employment opportunities for women in science, educate women about seeking careers in science, encourage women to achieve professional advancement, recognize the achievements of women in science, promote employment flexibility to meet the needs of women in science, cooperate with national, state, and local organizations that share common objectives with AWIS Chicago, and publicize the activities of women in the scientific community.
AWIS Chapters extend the reach and effectiveness of our collective advocacy efforts on behalf of women in STEM. Chapters are robust, multidisciplinary communities that bring together stakeholders from a wide range of employment sectors, scientific disciplines, and career stages. Their activities can vary greatly based on the leadership and community they serve. By joining a Chapter, members have opportunities to advance their careers through professional development, mentoring, information sharing, outreach and professional networking in formal and informal social settings.
Additional information is available about this Chapter on their website and social media pages. Membership in AWIS National is a requirement for participation in an AWIS Chapter.
