Welcome To the Sacramento Valley Chapter for the Association for women in Science
AWIS champions the interests of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics across all disciplines and employment sectors. Working for positive system transformation, AWIS strives to ensure that all women in these fields can achieve their full potential.
We host networking events, informational seminars and workshops, and even field trips to visit our industry supporters, all designed to promote women in science.
Careers in the Biotech Industry Students and professionals alike learned about life at large and small companies and networked at our recent event Careers in the Biotech Industry. We had a great time hearing from our keynote speaker Cate Dyer, panelist speakers, and representatives of local biotech companies. A big THANK YOU to ALL of our speakers as well as our co-host, Marrone Bio Innovations!

Mentorship Program Our 6-month mentorship program is back this fall! svAWIS will facilitate small group mentoring circles connecting industry and academic professionals (as mentors) with undergraduate, graduate students and early career scientists (mentees). Mentors will be available to answer science career and life questions to a small group of like minded students via email or in person. Scheduling is flexible and will be based on the preferences of the individuals in the group, but will take typically ~30 minutes per week. Mentorship program participants must be members of svAWIS. You can sign up for membership here - make sure you also select the Sacramento Valley Chapter. If you are not sure whether you are a member or if you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com . Also, see more on the membership tab of this website!
