An OWSD National Chapter is a group of OWSD members from the same country who fully support the objectives and activities of OWSD, and aim to promote female participation in science and technology, in scientific leadership, and in the decision-making processes, both at the national and regional levels.
National chapters can:
Provide networking and information sharing between institutions and individuals for promoting the increased participation of women in science and technology.
Initiate science-based activities that address national concerns working with all levels of society (grassroots, schools and universities).
Evolve and develop strategies for mobilizing financial and human resources towards achieving OWSD's objectives.
The OWSD-CAM National Chapter seeks to, among others, promote female participation in science, promote the recognition of Cameroonian female scientists by profiling STEM women in Cameroon, and impact the young generation by organizing workshops and outreach activities to schools.
