Affinity Group Alliance

The Affinity Group Alliance (AGA) brings together national and local affinity groups that provide support, networking, and professional development for over 84,000 technical women.  The mission of the Alliance is to unite affinity groups, empower our members, and ensure the success and sustainability of our members' organizations by providing research-based resources, outreach, and volunteer opportunities; and by providing a platform for collaboration and information sharing. Our vision is to be the premier learning community and action platform for affinity groups to connect, collaborate, and unite. See the full list of members here, and download some of the most pertinent resources here.
