Welcome to the AWIS New York Metropolitan Chapter
The AWIS NY Metro Chapter serves scientists in the NYC and Metropolitan NY area. Their mission is to empower women to enter, remain, and advance in science careers both inside and outside academia. They provide professional development training and a supportive community with opportunities for networking and mentoring.
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.
