Women in Network Science (WiNS) fosters opportunities for the education, employment, and career advancement of women in Network Science. By leveraging professional and social contacts among its members, WiNS promotes the presence and visibility of women as participants, speakers, and organizers of scholarly gatherings within network science, social networks, and complex systems. A social and professional network, WiNS encourages its members to discuss issues concerning gender and representation in network science and related fields, and encourage the thoughtful development of strategies and solutions.
Our goal is to promote and publicize the work and expertise of scholars in network science who identify as women. We extend an open invitation to women to join us in building a more inclusive network science community.
A series of projects will be developed that aim to increase awareness and appreciation of the achievements of women in network science. Our programs will help women build their technical confidence and their voice, and our efforts will help ensure that women in network science and their achievements are known in the community.
