Affiliated Groups


This year we became an official affiliate group of the national Association for Women in Science! We write up summaries of our seminars and workshops to share insights, ideas, and techniques to help women and underrepresented groups succeed in STEM.

If you couldn’t make it to one of our seminars/workshops, or want to contribute to our blog on the AWIS website and get into our network of scientists and engineers there, please visit our page on the AWIS website!

Other groups at CU that we work with include:


CU-Prime is a student-led group at the Physics Department of University of Colorado, Boulder. They strive to increase diversity and inclusion in Physics and STEM fields via mentorship and community building. We are working together to host collaborative events throughout the year (including the best happy hours!). Read more about CU-Prime here.
