Welcome to the AWIS San Diego Chapter
The AWIS San Diego Chapter was established in the mid 1980s. It currently has over 300 active members, and is one of the largest chapters in the country. Their diverse membership includes students as well as professors, entry-level interns and CEOs, patent attorneys as well as business entrepreneurs. Over 60% of the membership holds a doctoral degree. Members participate in the San Diego science community in many ways. These include, but are not limited to, research, teaching, administration, patent law, science writing, and consulting, in venues from academe to government to all kinds of business and industry.
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.
