The Association for Women in Science (AWIS) champions the interests of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics across all disciplines and employment sectors including academia, industry, and government.
The Central Massachusetts chapter of AWIS was formed in 2016. In both years since forming, we have won STAR Chapter Awards in recognition for our high-quality program and commitment to support STEM equality in our region. We host career panels, networking socials, professional development workshops, scientific symposia and mentoring groups that support the professional and personal lives of our new and growing membership.
In joining our chapter, we will help you in building and refining your career. We are dedicated to bringing you the tools and resources to support you at every stage of your career, whether you are a student, post-doc or professional. Beyond promoting yourself, becoming an AWIS member shows your commitment to achieving equality in the STEM disciplines both locally and nationally.
