Undergraduate Women in Science at Yale (UWISAY) was founded in 2009 as a sister of the graduate organization which established the original WISAY mentoring program. UWISAY is dedicated to encouraging a spirit of community and solidarity for women interested in science.
In addition to organizing two mentoring programs, UWISAY has hosted biweekly residential college dinners with various female professors in the sciences. More recently, UWISAY has hosted a Cocktail Chemistry event during Bulldog Days each year starting in 2010. In the community, UWISAY volunteers with Girls’ Science Investigations (GSI), leading monthly sessions with middle school students in the New Haven area. As an organization, we aim to provide a common point of entry for all female undergrads interested in the sciences.
Starting in 2012, UWISAY has hosted an annual one-day conference for undergraduate students at Yale, including exciting keynote speakers from the Yale scientific community and panels on a range of topics, from life in grad school to creative careers in industry.
We also regularly plan group dinners, snack-filled study breaks, mixers, and even fall break trips!
