Network for Women in Science


Mission: The Network for Women in Science (NWiS) is a community at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, the UF Scripps Biomedical Research, and Florida Atlantic University dedicated to raising awareness and promoting change related to issues pertinent to female under-representation in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)-related careers. We welcome all genders, and aim to build a community of support to foster the careers of scientists through community outreach, career workshops, and bias education.

NWiS hosts events, workshops, a mentoring program that are open to all. We also maintain a database of resources helpful to scientists at all career levels.
