Organizations

The Graduate School at Princeton University supports a number of student led organizations that focus on topics relevant to Women in STEM. Each of these groups has their own mission, purpose, and programming but all share an emphasis on support, research, and mentorship to women in the STEM fields. Additionally, each organization has a seat on the Women in STEM Leadership Council, which is convened by the Diversity and Inclusion team.
