Thank you NSF and Wellesley Centers for Women

FairerScience began as joint project of the Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) and Campbell-Kibler Associates, Inc. (C-KA) funded by the National Science Foundation's Research on Gender in Science and Engineering Program (NSF). NSF funding and WCW support gave FairerScience the opportunity to begin and grow and we are very grateful to them.

Sunday is the last day of the NSF grant that started FairerScience. The website and blog will continue as a project of C-KA This means that from now on "the opinions expressed are those of Campbell-Kibler Associates only," although hopefully others will agree or at least enjoy. Sometimes the opinions expressed may only be mine. (You probably will be able to figure out which ones those are).

More seriously, FairerScience began because researchers and advocates for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) have not been effectively communicating their findings in ways that allow the public including policy makers, educators and parents to understand and evaluate these findings and, where appropriate, make decisions based on them. We remain committed to changing that both in terms of gender and where gender issues in STEM interact with issues of race/ethnicity and disability.
