Welcome to the AWIS St. Louis Chapter
The mission of AWIS Saint Louis Chapter is to promote a positive environment for women in the larger scientific community through education, advocacy, and outreach. AWIS Saint Louis works to increase the available mentoring and networking resources for women at all stages of their scientific careers by sponsoring workshops and by holding social gatherings for AWIS members. They also work to improve the perception of women within the scientific community by increasing recognition for the accomplishments of female scientists.
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.
