Gender, Science, and Organizations Writing Workshop

The 11th semi-annual Gender, Science, and Organizations Writing Workshop will take place from 8:30 am to 5 pm on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016 at the Sociologist for Women in Society winter meeting in Memphis, Tennessee.

We are a growing, loosely organized group comprised of sociologists working on research related to gender equity in academia, especially within STEM fields. Many workshop participants work on NSF-funded ADVANCE research projects.

The purpose of the workshop is to: 1) network with other scholars conducting research on similar topics and 2) write. As a group, we will talk about our current projects. This will provide workshop participants with the information necessary to explore potential collaborative projects. There will also be two large designated blocks of time for writing. All interested sociologists are welcome to join the writing workshop. Send an email to Christina Falci ( to reserve your spot in the workshop.

Pre-registration for the SWS winter meetings ends January 24th. Your SWS conference fees will cover the room cost for the writing workshop. Participants need to bring a laptop computer (maybe an extension cord) and are encouraged to bring snacks to share. We will coordinate a place to have lunch during the workshop (participants pay for their own meals).
