Goals of Christian Women in Science (CWIS)

Goals of CWIS

Women earn fewer than a third of the PhDs in computer sciences, earth, atmospheric, and ocean sciences; mathematics and statistics; physical sciences; and engineering. Many of the women with PhDs in science and engineering leave the workforce or academia soon after they begin employment.

The extent of this problem is described in Rosser, S.V., Taylor, M. Z. "Why Are We Still Worried about Women in Science?” in Academe, magazine for the American Association of University Professors, May-June 2009. CWIS exists to help correct this problem. Here are our goals:


• Encourage more Christian women to go into science, technology, engineering, or math and to remain active in their careers

• Encourage more women in the sciences to be bolder in sharing their faith or to seek Christ for the first time

• Help more Christian women move into leadership or management positions in science

• Grow ASA by outreach to Christian women in science, increasing gender diversity of ASA membership and leadership

• Provide connections, encouragement, information, and role models for pre-career and early-career women in science

• Support mid-career women with work/life problems related to being a Christian, a woman, and a scientist

• Provide opportunities for our established leaders to make a difference in the lives and careers of other Christian women in science, to share their wisdom and experience, and to be recognized for their service
