Anyone with a baccalaureate degree, regardless of their gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or class. Many of our members hold masters and doctoral degrees, but our membership is open to anyone who holds a baccalaureate degree and who supports the mission of our organization.
In addition, absolutely anyone can become an affiliate member, whether or not he or she has obtained a baccalaureate degree. Affiliate members do not have voting rights but are otherwise invited to participate in all GWIS functions, activities, events, and conferences.
Our members and supporters span local and virtual communities all over the world. On campuses, we foster the next generation of women in leadership and in the workplace. After graduation, we mentor, connect and support educational and professional development.
