500 Women Scientists is a non-profit organization with locations worldwide created to support women in science, and also give girls around the world access to paths in STEM. It focuses on bringing women together in small groups to bring change to the world, as opposed to having large gatherings.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
