Women in Science and Engineering

The Chemistry WISE team provides a networking resource for women graduate students and post-docs in the department, with the goal of increasing the recruitment and retention of women, and improving the climate for all chemists. Read more about the program in a paper presented at the CIC-WISE Best Practices in Mentoring Workshop. See also the article on women's networks in the fall ACS publication "Chemistry".
