WCC continues to be an active part of the grassroots ACS coalition, the Chemical Entrepreneurship Council. Our goal is to help women chemists gain the skills necessary to translate their innovative research to tangible products and services.
From Invention to Venture (I2V)
This workshop, held at the 2011 Northwest Regional Meeting of the ACS, focused on the key challenges facing chemists as they start up new ventures or license or otherwise transfer technology.
From Invention to Venture: Women and Technology Entrepreneurship
This workshop, held at the Fall 2009 ACS National Meeting, was targeted at scientists who want to gain insight and skills needed to competitively represent innovation.
Women Chemists in the National Inventors Hall of Fame
This project is intended to entertain you and to bring you to a new state of understanding about people and science, about scientists and inventors, about a group of people who could have lived next door to you.
This report outlines employment trends and the issues that face non-tenure track faculty, as well as the departments in which they work.
WCC, along with the Committee on Economic and Professional Affairs and the Committee on Education, has formed a task force on nontenure-track faculty.
In 2002, the American Chemical Society provided seed funding and launched a pilot project aimed at facilitating the full participation and advancement of women scientists and engineers in the chemical sciences. The overall project is called PROGRESS (Partnerships, Reflection, Openness, Grants, Resources, Education, Site Visits and Success), and it consists of seven independent but interconnected programs: (1) Corporate Recognition; (2) Web-based Resource Center; (3) Be Visible: funding seminar speakers; (4) ACS Course on Business and Leadership Skills for Women in the Chemical Workforce; (5) Thriving in the Workplace Roadshows; (6) GROW: Grants for Renewal Opportunities for Women; and (7) Academic Awareness/Site Visits.
