WIST nominations call for steering committee members
The Women in Science and Technology (WIST) Program is seeking committee members to support the organization’s mission of promoting the success of women at the laboratory. WIST has a broad base of volunteers enabling its initiatives to thrive and benefit Argonne’s culture, visibility and ability to attract a diverse workforce.
WIST is seeking steering committee member nominations from employees on the scientific, technical, and professional staff to serve for four years and nominations for postdoctoral staff to serve for two years. Members are expected to attend all meetings, support and shape WIST activities and outreach events, and fully participate by contributing ideas and helping with different tasks as needed.
To carry forward the WIST mission, committee members work closely with the WIST program initiator and other steering committee representatives from Argonne management.
The committee’s charter includes recommending a WIST program initiator to lead the laboratory’s efforts to recruit, retain and promote women. The committee also supports and shapes WIST activities, evaluates the WIST program’s effectiveness and facilitates intra-laboratory communications as well as outreach activities.
Those interested in identifying and nominating staff to the steering committee should provide a curriculum vitae and cover memo addressing the reasons why the nominee should become a committee member. Application materials should be sent to both Kathy Eggers and the candidate’s division director, by Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2018. Self-nominations are welcome.
