The Back To Work Initiative is a sub-group of AWIS-SD members whose mission is to support women of science in their endeavor to return to the workplace after an absence. The Initiative has three components/goals:
1. A Monthly Coffee Club that offers support, networking, encouragement and sharing of job search strategies.
2. A Career Development component to train our members in job search strategies.
3. Building Relationships to forge alliances with corporate and nonprofit entities that can assist our members in their transition back to the workforce.
