How we work


Although we are an online organization, WG-USA members have the opportunity to meet face-to-face two out of three years at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), held in a different part of the country each year. On the third year, members are encouraged to attend the GWI Triennial Conference.

The WG-USA Board and Committees meet on a regular basis via teleconference and at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

We communicate with our members via e-mail, our e-newsletter (The Flame), our website, and teleconferencing.

Board elections are held annually via electronic vote. The business of the organization takes place at our AGM, either face-to-face or by teleconference.



Membership in WG-USA includes a membership in the Graduate Women International (GWI).

WG-USA members are eligible to serve on GWI committees and task forces and hold office.

GWI members communicate on issues of importance through GWI discussion groups and webinars.

GWI holds a conference every third year.
