International Women's Day

Donate to help women in science and STEM reach their full potential. Your gift will help advance, recognize, and inspire future women to #DiscoverWhatsNext.


Diversity in science and STEM is critical to rapid innovation and the advancement of society. Help us retain women in STEM. Please consider donating in honor of International Women’s Day.

Your support will help us:

  • Advance women in science and STEM through scholarships and mentoring
  • Empower tomorrow’s women scientists and leaders with training and development
  • Energize and inspire women with ideas, resources, and success stories
  • Drive systemic change through organizational partnerships and policy changes 

You can also share your commitment to #EmbraceEquity on social media. Post this statement (or write your own) with a photo of yourself with your hands on opposite shoulders giving yourself a hug: “Individually and as organizations, we can create more inclusive, equitable, and innovative workplaces. Join me @AWISnational #EmbraceEquity #InternationalWomensDay”

Note: If you are interested in corporate donations or partnership opportunities, we would love to talk to you!
