Chapter Programs

Seattle AWIS holds monthly chapter meetings at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center on the third Wednesday of every month September through May starting at 6:00pm. The chapter board meets monthly at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and the various board committees schedule meetings as needed. We aim for all of these events to be available on the calendar here, and chapter members are welcome to attend all board meetings with no obligation!If you are interested in coordinating an event with AWIS, please contact: programs@seattleawis.org.

Being a Woman Scientist

Being a woman in science comes with a unique set of challenges. In 2017, the US Department of Commerce reported that Women only occupied 25% of all STEM jobs, and that the retention of Women in those roles was significantly lower than their male counterparts. With this in mind, our speakers will share insights from their successful career journeys including the challenges they faced, and advice for early-career Scientists.
