Welcome to the AWIS Palo Alto Chapter
The mission of AWIS Palo Alto is to provide networking opportunities for women in science at all levels, foster career development and advancement for women in science, raise public awareness of the scientific and technological skills of women, work with other scientific, educational, and women’s organizations in developing national and community programs that meet the above goals, and provide recognition for women scientists in order to advance the above goals.
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.
