Review for Open Hearth Foundation Inc, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Open Hearth Foundation (OHF) has pursued its mission with significant success despite enormous challenges. As an all-volunteer effort in a community that is frequently at odds with itself, the OHF remains a professional, ethical, transparent and honest provider of services for the DC Pagan community.

Review for Association for Women in Science, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AWIS is at the forefront of the movement to address the biases, conscious and unconscious, that hold women back from achieving at the highest levels in STEM professions and academia. They have emerged as a key voice for women in STEM in Washington, DC and throughout the US.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Double their budget, at least.

Review for Association for Women in Science, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a member of AWIS since I was a graduate student in the early 1980's. At every step on my career path, AWIS was a sure source of excellent contacts, advice, and resources. I volunteer for AWIS now as a way of paying it forward - I want young women in science and engineering to benefit from whatever wisdom my experience has given me, and from my network of contacts. No organization does as much for women in science as AWIS does. Every scientific and scholarly society that pays lip service to diversity and the advancement of women would do well to emulate what AWIS has done so well for more than 40 years.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide an endowment that would underwrite its operating expenses and allow it to expand its programming.
