A Note 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!
