1st GEN IN SUPRAMOLECULAR CHEMISTRY 

Welcome

to the Women In Supramolecular Chemistry Network!

WISC (Women In Supramolecular Chemistry) is an international network creating a sense of kinship and providing support for women. In doing so, we aim to support the retention and career progression of women of all career stages within our community.

The WISC terms of reference can be downloaded here.

WISC uses an inclusive definition of women from the Women in Academia Support Network (with permission).[1] We are a place for those who identify as women, including trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified to share their experiences of professional and family life.

WISC believe that everyone should be included and welcomed in conversations about equality, diversity and inclusion, because building a fairer system benefits everyone. Our training workshops and events are open to participants of any gender, and all are welcome to access our online resources.

"When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.”

Toni Morrison
