Welcome to the AWIS West Virginia Chapter
AWIS West Virginia is dedicated to achieving equity and full participation for women in science, technology, and engineering in West Virginia. They do this through networking with women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) throughout West Virginia on our listserv; presenting an event with hands-on workshops for middle school students at a different location in the state each Spring; working with students in the WVU student chapter; hosting women in STEM visitors; and monthly informal lunch meetings.
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.
