50 Years of Excellence 

about AWIS

The Association for Women in Science was founded in the early 70's to promote equity in Science.  It has since grown into a national organization with global reach.  The AWIS San Diego Chapter was founded in the mid 80's to support women in Science careers and later broadened its reach to include all STEM fields, career levels, and employment sectors. 


AWIS San Diego hosts the Women in Science and Technology Conference (WIST) biennially. WIST 2021 is the 16th year we have brought together the STEM community to provide professional development, and networking across career levels, STEM fields and employment sectors.


This year’s conference includes ample opportunities for cross collaborative networking on an engaging video game virtual platform. The agenda includes a keynote, three (3) session offerings with two to  three interactive track options: including engaging talks and panels, an awards reception, and career round tables delivering relevant strategies for early, mid, and senior career stages.
