We encourage women to use and develop their scientific abilities and to achieve their full potential.

Our Aims are to:

  1. Provide a network for women interested or working in the sciences to share scientific information, experience and skills.
  2. Explore and speak on issues relating to women and science.
  3. Provide social interaction with others who have similiar interests.
  4. Assist girls and women to gain confidence in their role in the sciences and increase self knowledge.
  5. Provide visibility for women in the sciences and to support women to achieve visibility in the sciences.
