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.
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.

Our undergrad research event, "Beyond a Science Degree" is focused on providing information to physical science majors on what their options are post graduation. We are working to help connect students with research opportunities, provide advice on how to reach their goals, and expand the common idea of what you can do with a science degree. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Guests who RSVP will be automatically entered to win a variety of great prizes from local vendors!

The UO Women in Graduate Sciences is proud to cohost the ION seminar series of Dr. Ben Barres on May 14th from 4-5pm in Willamette 110. Dr. Barres has pioneered work in glia neurobiology that has elevated glia from the lowly "glue" of the brain to integral members of the central nervous system formation that are required for proper synaptogenesis. His current work also focuses on the roles of glia and neurons in regeneration or more precisely, the failure to regenerate after injury.
