Our Mission

The Women in Graduate Science (UOWGS) organization at the University of Oregon focuses on the professional development of women in all disciplines of science to enable them to become successful contributors to their fields.

This mission is accomplished by informative workshops, inspirational speakers, and a community outreach program. In addition, the organization provides social support for women scientists at the University of Oregon, and offers financial support with yearly scholarships.

The UOWGS invites all who encourage and support the advancement of women in science to become members. The UOWGS is supported by the Graduate School, generous donors, fundraising events, and member dues.

In the News

A recent news article discusses a new study that contributes to the growing body of evidence which indicates that gender bias is a continuing challenge in the sciences. Want to change this? We do too.

Around the O wrote an article about our recent undergraduate outreach event. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make it a sucess.
