Welcome to the AWIS L.A. and Ventura County Chapter
The mission of AWIS LA/Ventura County is to foster the personal and professional skills of women so they can become leaders in their field; support women at all stages of their career through career development workshops, networking opportunities, social gatherings, and specific mentoring programs; promote a collegial environment where women from different disciplines and employment sectors feel confident to share their experience, advice, and expertise for the benefit of all members; and cultivate the next generation of women in science to be confident and ready to pursue their full potential.
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.
