Welcome to AWIS Chicago Area Chapter

The Association for Women in Science (AWIS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to achieving equity and full participation of women in all areas of science, technology, and engineering.

The Chicago Chapter of the Association for Women in Science was founded in 1978 as a local chapter of the national organization.

2013 was an exciting year for the AWIS Chicago Chapter. We expanded our outreach programs, sponsored professional development workshops and hosted several social activities for area women scientists. In 2014 we will continue to offer career development programs. Please see below for upcoming events!
