Welcome to the AWIS Fairbanks Chapter
The mission of AWIS Fairbanks Chapter is to raise awareness of and encourage interest in STEM fields and career paths for girls beginning in kindergarten, and support women in STEM studies and professions. Their vision is full participation in STEM activities and careers with equal opportunities and pay for girls and women.
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.
