Welcome to the AWIS Philadelphia Chapter
The mission of AWIS Philadelphia is to offer programs and resources to provide networking, mentoring, and leadership opportunities for women in STEM at all levels of their careers and education. The emphasis in all AWIS Philadelphia programs and activities is mentoring in all its possible forms—providing a scientific forum for undergraduate and graduate research, acting as role models, and providing career advice for postdocs and the newly employed, as well as established professionals. These goals are accomplished through programs at chapter meetings and participation in outreach programs at all educational levels.
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.
