Women and Science: Successful Female Chemists

The Chemistry Between Women & Science. ‘Three female chemists – Donna J. Nelson, Debra R. Rolison, Geraldine L. Richmond – talk about paths to success for women in their field. Chemistry is one of the most male-dominated disciplines in academe. In 2003, the most recent year for which such figures are available, about 12 percent of all tenured and tenure-track chemistry professors at the country’s top research universities were female. That was the case even though at least 30 percent of the doctoral degrees earned in chemistry go to women.’

PROGRESS – Women Chemists and Chemical Engineers. ‘PROGRESS is a three-year pilot project launched in 2002 to develop, test, and evaluate 7 new programs aimed at facilitating the full participation and advancement of women chemists and chemical engineers. Its goals are to assist entry-level professionals find employment and guide and support early and mid-career professionals seeking advancement.’
