OUR GOALS

Connect, Lead and Empower

At Delaware Chapter- Graduate Women In Science, we strive to connect UD graduate women in the STEM field to other passionate, diverse scientists to uplift each other and work together to promote science.  We aim to create a haven where graduate students and women scientists from UD and the surrounding community, will accomplish all of their goals, both personally and professionally. We offer the students a variety of opportunities to participate in outreach activities, networking, and making an impact in the community.
