Metro Women Chemists Committee

Welcome to the North Jersey Metro Women Chemists Committee (MWCC) web page. Our mission is to strengthen the contribution of women in the chemical sciences.

We serve early and mid-career scientists through programming and invite graduate and undergraduate students to participate. Among our goals:

  • To promote networking and information sharing amongst women in the chemical sciences. We do this by
    • Sponsoring a Women Chemists Committee luncheon at each ACS MARM Meeting
    • Hosting a networking meeting in North Jersey each fall that includes the opportunity for younger scientists to give short research presentations
  • To provide outreach and career programming to undergraduate students by hosting meetings in conjunction with student affiliate groups in the North Jersey area

Committee Contacts

If you have any questions about MWCC or if you would like to be added to our email list, please contact one of our co-chairs.  All are welcome to join at our events! We are planning to do this at least twice a year.
