Women in Science on What It Takes to Succeed

The L’Oréal USA For Women in Science (FWIS) program is pleased to announce the release of their new study on postdoctoral women in STEM, commissioned in partnership with the Heising-Simons Foundation and conducted by research firm RTI International. 

Since 2003, L’Oréal USA’s FWIS program has supported 75 outstanding female postdoctoral scientists from across the country, awarding them nearly $4 million in grants. Amazingly, all of these women have bucked the “leaky pipeline” trend and remained in STEM-related careers.

To mark the 15th anniversary of the program and to further contribute to the dialogue around strategies for increasing the staying power of women in STEM fields, L’Oréal USA and Heising-Simons commissioned a study of the 75 FWIS fellows to explore how their experiences and recommendations can help more women succeed in science during this critical postdoctoral career stage and beyond.

FWIS Webinar

FWIS will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, November 21 from 2:00 - 3:00 PM to share the findings of the study.  RSVP here if you are interested in participating.
