Welcome to the AWIS Sacramento Valley Chapter
AWIS Sacramento Valley is organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, specifically: to promote equal opportunity for women to enter the scientific professions and achieve their career goals; to raise the status of women in science, and women generally; to initiate, encourage and engage in research related to women in the scientific fields and other works of educational and scientific nature; and to exchange information with other groups supportive of our goals, and coordinate activities directed to their fulfillment.
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.
