Aberdeen University Women in Science and Engineering (AUWISE) was set up to encourage the next generation of talented female students to take up STEM subjects at university. We also aim to equip female students at Aberdeen University with the skills they need to develop successful careers, where we organise networking sessions and career-focused events.

There are lots of opportunities for members to meet and interact with other students studying similar degrees and network with a large range of different industries.

  1. Dear Colleagues

    On behalf of the Royal Academy of Science International Trust (RASIT) and our partner, the United Nations Division of Social Policy and Development, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, it is a privilege to extend to you a cordial invitation to attend and participate at the first commemoration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, to be held at the United Nations Headquarters, New York City on February 11th 2016.

    This historic day is an occasion for world leaders, United Nations system entities, women in science, professionals, members of civil society, the media and the private sector to celebrate the contribution of women in science to humanity and development through history. Special focus will be on the role of women in science in the implementation of the 2030 Development Agenda.

    On December 22nd 2015, the 70th Session of the United Nations General Assembly adopted a groundbreaking Resolution to establish an annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This Resolution demonstrates the commitment of Member States to achieving gender equality for women in science, still a major challenge. Inequality hinders the capacity of nations to unlock the full transformative contribution that women in science can make to our world.

    Inclusion of an International Day of Women and Girls in Science annually on 11 February during the annual Session of the Commission on Social Development would bring the issue of advanced education in all scientific fields to wide public attention and help to popularize many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the mind of the greater public.

    Today, more than ever, the global strategy for health, education, economy, development, and humanitarian outreach needs precisely the radiant sun of Women in Science to provide light and nourishment. To provide healing. To dry out the swamps of poverty and unrest.

    Your kind attention, presence and intervention in this occasion are essential and will directly influence the perception of women in science for sustainable development and elevate the contributions of women in science, past, present and future, that equitably reflects the aspirations and ambitions of all global citizens.

    Please note that due to United Nations Security and Safety regulation, a limited number of seats will be available. Therefore, we encourage you to register as soon as possible using the following link:

    Looking forward to welcoming you at the United Nations

    Yours sincerely
