AWIS DC End of the Year Event
Wednesday, December 14
Networking & Appetizers at 6:00 PM
Panel Discussion at 6:30 PM
AAAS Building, Washington DC
Admission fee is $5 plus a contribution to the Children’s National patient toy drive!
We hope you will join us for a very special event on December 14 at the AAAS headquarters!
For our last activity of the year, we are hosting a panel discussion about the changing administration, and the role that we, as avid supporters of women in science and technology, can play over both the short and long term. We know that many of you are frustrated and anxious about upcoming policies changes. It’s important that we make sure our voices are heard, as we fight to protect diversity in STEM education and encourage fact-based policy decisions.
Our panelist for the evening include Mayra Montrose, Bill Pewen, and Sandra Scham. Stay tuned for bios!
In addition to the discussion, we will provide resources for those of you looking for ways to be more involved in AWIS and other like-minded organizations. We also want to hear from you: what would like to see the chapter do in 2017?
Holiday Toy Collection
During the event, we will be collecting toys for the patients at Children’s National Medical Center who won’t be home for the holidays. Board games, Legos, and toys for infants are very much needed. If you can’t bring a toy, cash or gift cards to places like Target, Amazon, iTunes, Visa/American Express are also acceptable. Click here to learn more about what items are needed and what is prohibited, but please no used, breakable, or gift-wrapped items.
Come join your fellow AWIS members to network, discuss, encourage, and plan. Looking forward to seeing you there!
