The West Michigan chapter of the Association of Women in Science (AWIS) remains the largest multidisciplinary organization for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This organization continues to impact others daily by pushing towards gender equity in science.

… “We have networking events and professional development events,” (Karen) Gipson said. “We also rent workshops for faculty and students to take that next step in their career. We participate in a lot of outreach events like the Math and Science Center, Chemistry at the Mall, and even our own event: Fall in Love with STEM. This is at Grand Valley, GRCC and Hope college. GVSU students and faculty host middle school students during this event.”
