Network for Women in Science

The Network for Women in Science (NWiS) strives to increase visibility, leadership and community for women scientists, and to raise awareness of and promote change related to women’s representation in STEM-related education and careers.

The Network’s goals are to:

  1. Create a supportive network of women and allies within the Scripps Research community.
  2. Drive awareness of issues that disproportionately affect career advancement for women, including discrimination, exclusion, harassment and child-care policies.
  3. Advocate for diversity initiatives and policies in collaboration with the Scripps Research administration.
  4. Promote an inclusive culture within STEM, both in higher education and the community-at-large.
  5. Press for intersectional approaches to change that promote BIPOC and LGBTQ scientists through collaborative events and inclusive discussion.
