The website was developed by the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSDW) in collaboration with the IANAS Women for Science Working Group. The Women for Science Working Group (WfS-WG) was established by the InterAmerican Network of Academies of Science (IANAS) in June 2010 under the sponsorship of IAP.
The first phase of the site presents information on:
1) The WfS-WG and its initial activities and meetings;
2) Gender-related resources and links in the IANAS programme areas of science education, water and energy;
3) The roles of IAP and IANAS in establishing and supporting the WfS-WG.
In the near future the site will highlight the lives and achievements of eminent women scientists in the Latin America and Caribbean regions and promote networking, career development and leadership opportunities in the region.
The site is located at: http://www.ianas.org/wfswg/women_en.asp.
