Formerly GWIS Kappa, we at GWIS NYC Metro are dedicated to empowering women through science and education. Our hope is to become a unifying force for all of the Women in Science groups across the greater NYC metropolitan area.

It is our mission to increase the visibility and impact of women in STEM fields and in society. We strive to encourage networking among our fellow scientists by holding seminars and social events for scientists of all fields to attend. We endeavor to create a strong relationship with the surrounding communities and help to plant seeds of scientific curiosity in young girls by bringing learning opportunities to young people of all socioeconomic backgrounds. There are many opportunities available to us to implement these missions in New York City and the surrounding greater metropolitan area.
