Who We Are


The AWIS Georgia Chapter is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that champions the interests of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) across all disciplines, socio-economic strata, and occupational focus. We exist to:

(1) encourage the interest and active participation of women from under-represented racial and ethnic groups, particularly African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans;

(2) acknowledge and support women with differences in family status, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, and physical abilities;

(3) embed diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts into day-to-day member service; and

(4) work strategically to engage the male majority population.

Welcome from the President


Welcome to the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) Georgia Chapter!

Based in Atlanta, our goal is to advance the vision of AWIS National throughout the state of Georgia and beyond. AWIS Georgia supports and empowers women in all fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in any employment sector. We host professional development, mentoring, networking, and social activities, as well as participate in local STEM outreach initiatives.


Our members hail from cities such as Atlanta, Decatur, Snellville, Milledgeville, Athens, Savannah, Valdosta, and more. No matter your location, we would love for you to become involved! I encourage you to attend our events, volunteer on a committee, become a partner, and/or enroll as an official sponsor. Join our extraordinary team of highly motivated, bright, and talented individuals, who together with the greater AWIS community, are reshaping the landscape for current and future generations of women in STEM!


Warmest wishes,


Kathryn Oliver, Ph.D.

President, AWIS Georgia Chapter
