Building a global community to inspire, support, recognize, and empower women in science.


Our mission is simple to build a global community that inspires, supports, recognizes, and empowers women in science. We accomplish that mission by staying true to our three guiding principles: Connect, Lead, and Empower.

Anyone who supports women in science are eligible for membership. This not includes people  who identify as women, men and others who identify as non-binary and other members of the LGBTQ community. Furthermore, anyone who lives in Philadelphia is eligible to become a member of our organization, including staff scientists, faculty, and especially students as they will benefit the most from membership.
