Welcome to the AWIS Gulf Coast Houston Chapter
AWIS Gulf Coast Houston Chapter’s ongoing programming and outreach aims to achieve the following goals: continue to provide networking opportunities for our members and to initiate professional collaborations amongst women in STEMM in both academia and industry; provide leadership opportunities and informational seminars focused on scientific career development; continue to recognize and honor successful women scientists who significantly contribute to the STEMM fields; raise community awareness of women in STEMM at all career levels; serve the Houston community through visiting local school districts to strengthen the interest in STEMM; increase the visibility of and the interest in the organization to promote our overall mission.
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.
