Welcome to Sigma Delta Epsilon/Graduate Women in Science!
In 1921, women graduate students from Cornell University formed the first SDE/GWIS chapter-Alpha Chapter– just one year after women won the right to vote! The group was originally formed as a fraternal science organization for women, to provide women in science the opportunity to interact in the informal and powerful ways that men in science did. But over the years, the mission statement of SDE/GWIS has expanded to today’s relevant statement. We are 900 strong with 20 regional chapters. Check out our fellowships program, our chapter activities, our honorary members and many other activities. We are “United in Friendship Through Science” and enjoy the camaraderie of other women scientists. Won’t you join us?
