For more than 25 years, The Rockefeller University's Women & Science Initiative has supported women in science by highlighting their many significant contributions, underscoring the importance of basic science in addressing women's health challenges, and encouraging more women to make scientific research a philanthropic priority.
The Rockefeller University’s Women & Science Initiative was established in 1997 to:
- Highlight the crucial role of basic research in addressing scientific challenges related to women’s health
- Showcase the contributions of women scientists
- Create a program of support for women scientists
- Encourage more women to embrace scientific research as a focus of their philanthropy
Through the Partners in Discovery fundraising program, Women & Science has raised more than $50 million for talented women pursuing careers in the sciences at The Rockefeller University.
