The Association for Women in the Sciences (AWIS) triennial conference provides an opportunity for women working in or supporting the sciences to develop their skills to support their professional advancement, and opportunities to learn from and network with other women working in the sciences.
Women are still under-represented in many areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), particularly at leadership levels. AWIS is dedicated to bettering the position of all women working in the sciences, to create a New Zealand where women are fairly represented throughout the science system.
Through AWIS 2021, women in the sciences will have the opportunity to learn skills to support their professional careers – such as facing unconscious bias and identifying mentors – as well as gain more understanding about issues facing women in STEM and how these may be addressed.
