American Association for the Advancement of Science
The American Association for the Advancement of Science is an international non-profit organization dedicated to advancing science around the world by serving as an educator, leader, spokesperson and professional association. In addition to organizing membership activities, AAAS publishes the journal Science, as well as many scientific newsletters, books and reports, and spearheads programs that raise the bar of understanding for science worldwide.
Association for Women in Science
AWIS is the Association for Women in Science. We are a non-profit association which works to promote women's activities in all scientific fields, from mentoring to scholarships to job listings. AWIS has over 5,000 members in fields spanning the life and physical sciences, mathematics, social science, and engineering. Over 50% of AWIS members have doctorates in their respective fields, and hold positions at all levels of industry, academia, and government. As part of its efforts to promote the entrance and advancement of women in science, AWIS has a long-standing commitment to fostering the careers of women science professionals. At the national level, AWIS publishes a variety of materials to inform girls and women about science programs and women's issues, including the bimonthly AWIS Magazine. The organization serves as a voice for women in science by helping to shape national policy through Congressional testimony and by participating in a variety of national coalitions.
AWIS' Academic Climate
The goal of the AWIS Project on Academic Climate was to provide the means for creating a better institutional climate for women in science. Given our commitment to this topic, AWIS thought it would be appropriate to share the methods, findings, and resources of its Academic Project with all institutions who are committed to tackling these issues. Through funding from the Advance Program of the National Science Foundation, the Academic Climate website has been developed by AWIS to serve as a guide for improving the academic environment for women in the sciences.
