Network for Women in Science


The Network for Women in Science (NWiS) at Scripps Research was founded by graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty in 2003. In the past 4 years, NWiS has strived to provide support, guidance, and opportunity for female scientists at Scripps Research; create awareness of issues that affect scientific career development and success; promote diversity at Scripps Research; and make a positive difference in the culture of science for the benefit of the entire scientific community.

During the past year, NWiS sponsored several events for career development and networking for junior scientists at Scripps Research. NWiS has hosted mentoring lunches at which junior scientists have the opportunity to informally connect with Scripps Research faculty. These lunches have provided a unique opportunity for networking across departments. In addition, NWiS has collaborated with the Kellogg School of Science and Technology Distinguished Lecturer Series. Through the Distinguished Lecturer Series, we have hosted 2 outstanding female scientists, Dr. Erin O'Shea from Harvard University and Dr. Elaine Fuchs from Rockefeller University. These leaders in their fields met informally with NWiS members to discuss obstacles and opportunities that arose throughout the lecturers' careers.

The NWiS officers express their appreciation to the Kellogg School of Science and Technology for its enthusiastic support of NWiS activities. In addition, we thank the following faculty for their participation and support of NWiS events: Linda Sherman, Erica Ollman-Sapphire, Bridget Carragher, Natasha Kralli, Clare Waterman-Storer, Sandra Schmid, Jamie Williamson, Kerry Mowen, Kathryn Crossin, and Kristin Baldwin.
