Our Mission:

Building a global community to inspire, support, recognize, and empower women in science.

We strive to achieve this mission by three very simple goals:

  1. CONNECT. Strive to build a powerful international network of women scientists.

  2. LEAD. Mentor the leaders of today so that they can inspire the leaders of tomorrow.

  3. EMPOWER. Empower women scientists to excel in their careers.


Since our first chapter was established at Cornell University in 1921, Graduate Women in Science has grown to reach women not only across the US but also across the globe. We have a rich history full of amazing women and stories. Find out more about us here.
