The 12th semi-annual Gender, Science, and Organizations Workgroup will take place from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm on Thursday, February 9th 2017 – the day of the opening evening reception for the Sociologists for Women in Society winter meetings in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The workgroup is targeted at sociologists who are already doing research on studies of gender & academic careers, scientific workplace organizations, organizational transformations to promote gender equality, etc. We are a growing, loosely organized group of sociologists who focus on science as a workplace and many workshop participants work on NSF-funded ADVANCE research projects.
