MASS AWIS 10th Anniversary Celebration


Join us for a festive luncheon to commemorate this milestone of

For a decade, MASS AWIS has been providing support, career development and mentorship to many extraordinary women in the STEM fields in Massachusetts. A key event in our chapter's history — a book club on the book Every Other Thursday — sparked the beginning of the ever-growing MASS AWIS Mentoring Circles Program. Our successful mentoring program has made a profound impact on the lives of our members. Thus, we are truly honored to have the author of the book, Dr. Ellen Daniell, as the keynote speaker at our 10th Anniversary Celebratory Luncheon. The program of the event will also include a video introduction from Massachusetts Senator, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and an Excellence in Mentoring Award presentation to Career Strategist, Sarah Cardozo Duncan.
