ASSOCIATION FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE INC
May 27, 2013

AWIS provides outstanding service to academia and industry through its information on how to promote gender equity and create a thriving organization. I was the direct beneficiary of this when my professional society, the American Astronomical Society, sent me to a training workshop at AWIS Headquarters on how to promote recognition of women in national awards. AWIS produced a set of training materials showing how implicit bias in male-dominated fields leads committees to overlook women, and providing best practices to train committees. The same materials are helpful to search committees. All advocates for equity in STEM disciplines recognize AWIS as a leading source of information and ideas.
