create a new chapter


Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “A rising tide raises all boats.” It’s something we believe in, and there is nothing quite like connecting with other passionate, like-minded scientists to share experiences and help lift you through and beyond your academic career.


Creating a GWIS chapter will allow you to recruit those people, make an impact in your community, and develop a bond with other women scientists that will last a lifetime.



Creating a New Chapter is EASY!

Here is what you need to do to get started:



Does a chapter already exist in your area? Check our chapter directory. If the answer is no, then move on to Step 2! 


Contact to receive a package with detailed instructions. Our amazing membership committee chair will help you along the way to make sure the process is as smooth as possible.


Recruit at least 7 charter members to serve as officers of the new chapter. These members must be GWIS members, so make sure you have your memberships up to date!


Prepare the chapter establishment petition and the chapter bylaws. (This is easier than it sounds!)


Get approved and receive $500 to help you launch your new chapter! It’s that simple!
