Constitution and bylaws
The chapter's purposes are:
Our intention is to accomplish these goals primarily by:
- To increase the number of women obtaining degrees in science and technology and participating in the scientific and technological workforce at all levels
- To raise public awareness of the scientific and technological skills and contribution of women
- To provide awards for recognition of women scientists
- Fostering networking and communication among women science, mathematics, and technology faculty, staff, and students at UT, MUO, BGSU, and other regional institutions
- Working with other scientific, educational, and women's organizations to develop national and community programs
- Furthering the mentoring of our women students, postdocs, and non-tenured faculty
Anyone interested in issues concerning women in science is welcome to participate in our mentoring/networking activities.
