Christian Women in Science
Christian Women in Science (CWIS) is an affiliate group of the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA). Founded in 1941, ASA is an international network of Christians in the sciences. The mission of CWIS is to encourage Christian women of all ages to pursue, sustain, and grow in a career in science, technology, engineering or math, and to encourage women in these endeavors to pursue, sustain, and grow in the Christian faith.
we’re going to out-innovate and out-educate the rest of the world, we’ve got to
open doors for everyone. We need all hands on deck, and that means
clearing hurdles for women and girls as they navigate careers in science,
technology, engineering, and math (STEM).” -- First Lady Michelle Obama, September 26, 2011How to become involved: Become a Member! And you, too, can be one of our bloggers!
