Graduate Women in Science at Cornell University

The purpose of GWIS is to promote gender equality in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and to provide both gender-based and non gender-based support, networking, and recognition opportunities to scientists both at Cornell University and nationally.

We recognize that women have historically been disadvantaged in STEM, and that all genders deserve equal representation, opportunities, and responsibilities in STEM. This organization consists of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty who are involved in technology, engineering, mathematics, and the physical, natural, and social sciences.
