Gorge Women in STEM (GWIS)

GWIS LogoGorge Women in STEM started in late 2017 as a group dedicated to connecting and supporting women working in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math in the Columbia River Gorge. We host regular events with participation open to all women and allies that align with the mission of the group.

This initiative is supported by the Gorge Tech Alliance, with  special thanks to our 2023 GWIS sponsors SIGMA Design, Insitu, Cardinal Glass, Overwatch Imaging and Dana Meyer Consulting.

Events are planned with feedback from a sub-committee. Are you interested in joining or learning more?  Email us at jessica@crgta.org for more information.

Events in 2023 have been merged into the GTA’s event calendar.
