Latest news – merger with Women in Science AUSTRALIA

The Women in Science Enquiry Network Inc (WiSENet) was established 30 years ago to increase women’s participation in the sciences and to link people in different branches of science and those working towards a more participatory and socially useful science.

At a Special General Meeting held in November 2014 the members of WiSENet voted in favour of the proposal “that WiSENet merges with Women in Science AUSTRALIA under the name Women in Science AUSTRALIA.”  Women in Science AUSTRALIA is a recently incorporated group which aims to connect women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) including health and medicine, across every professional sector – education, research, industry, academia and government – regardless of their profession. Their website can be found here and includes a number of interesting blog posts written by prominent Australian scientists.

Discussions are ongoing between the Executive committees of WiSENet and Women in Science AUSTRALIA.
