NEI Women Scientists Advisory Committee (WSAC)

The NEI Women Scientist Advisor (WSA) provides forums to communicate and discuss issues of interest to women scientists in an effort to maintain a quality scientific work environment. Issues discussed at each monthly trans-NIH WSA meeting are communicated to all staff attending the NEI Scientific Director's monthly Lab/Branch Chief meeting and are also disseminated to all women PIs whose role it is to share with other women (staff scientists, staff clinicians, fellows, and students) in their research teams. Groups of women scientists meet regularly to discuss various topics pertinent to their professional activities, including scientific exchange and networking, professional development and training, mentoring, family and work/life, personnel issues, and administrative relations.
