Chapter News
GWIS International Chapter celebrated United Nation’s Day for Women and Girls in Science on February 11. Members of the Department of Statistics from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte in Natal, Brazil can be seen in the picture to celebrate the day with their fellow members. They have been preparing a proposal called "Girls in Data Science: getting to know the world and looking for innovative solutions" with the objective to awaken the analytical, scientific and entrepreneurial spirit in girls and women in High School and Higher Education in their state. 

GWIS Mid-Michigan Chapter recently hosted "Girls Math and science day" for local middle school girls. Over 100 girls and more than 50 volunteers participated in the event. Girls enjoyed science demonstrations and games. This was a wonderful outreach program motivating young girls to pursue science as a career. 

GWIS Research Triangle Chapter recently organized a volunteering event at the Durham Branch of the Food Bank, which serves more than 106,000 people living in food insecure households, nearly a third of whom are children. This was a great initiative by GWIS to positively impact the lives of people in the local community.
