Linda Mantel
As a founding member of the Greater New York AWIS chapter in 1971, I have been a part of the organization since its inception 50 years ago. As the number of women in science and related areas has grown and changed, so AWIS has grown and changed. I am encouraged to see the diversity of women and the diversity of science that we do well represented in the Magazine and online. How to ensure the future of AWIS? Think ahead. I have made a planned gift for when I am no longer available to give my yearly support. AWIS is an important support and resource today, and will remain so in the future.
