Fostering opportunities for the education, employment, and career advancement of women in Network Science

Women in Network Science (WiNS) fosters opportunities for the education, employment, and career advancement of women in Network Science, non-binary people in Network Science, and network scientists who have experienced sexism. By leveraging professional and social contacts among its members, WiNS promotes the presence and visibility of these groups 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 or non-binary researchers. We extend an open invitation to network scientists of all genders to join us in building a more inclusive network science community.
