AWIS Mission in Austin

AWIS Austin’s mission is to develop and strengthen the community of women pursuing careers in the STEM fields. We would like to support Austin Women by providing them with continuing education through monthly lecture series and special seminars, opportunities to find a mentor or become a mentor, and connecting them with other national and international women’s networks for career and personal development. AWIS Austin will focus its efforts on high school girls (11-12 grade), undergraduate/graduate, and professional levels through specialized circles. Our mission is to begin to encourage women as early as high school pursuing fields of science and supporting them through their education and into successful professional careers.
