Alliance for Women in Medicine and Science
SIU Medicine's Alliance for Women in Medicine and Science (AWIMS) was established in 2018. What started as an informal gathering gradually morphed into a robust, vital organization. Housed within the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, the mission of AWIMS is to provide a supportive forum to promote honest discussion and positive change in the realms of gender equity, career advancement, work-life balance, and community service, and to champion professional development and promotion of women in medicine and science. AWIMS is open to all members of our SIU community, not just women.
