The Women in Graduate Science (UOWGS) organization at the University of Oregon strives for gender equality by focusing on the professional development of women in all disciplines of science to enable them to become successful contributors to their fields.
This mission is accomplished by informative workshops, inspirational speakers, and a community outreach program. In addition, the organization provides social support for women scientists at the University of Oregon, and offers financial support with yearly scholarships.
The UOWGS invites all who encourage and support the advancement of women in science to become members and to help in our work towards an inclusive science community. The UOWGS is supported by the Graduate School, generous donors, fundraising events, ASUO, and member dues.
UOWGS is also dedicated to the support and equal treatment of LGBT scientists. All UOWGS meetings and events are dedicated safe spaces.
For more information about how UOWGS is run, we welcome you to browse through our bylaws.
