About Us

Argonne’s Women in Science and Technology (WIST) program was created in 1990 to recruit, retain, and promote women in an effort to diversify and strengthen the Laboratory’s scientific workforce. The program aims to promote the success of women in scientific and technical positions at Argonne, and outside as well. Through WIST, the Laboratory strives to encourage and develop the full potential of women in science and technology.

Mission

  1. Provide leadership and resources to Argonne to promote the success of women in scientific and technical positions at the Laboratory and elsewhere;
  2. Support and implement programs that encourage, develop, and utilize the full potential of women in science and technology; and
  3. Promote movement toward equity at all levels within Argonne so as to contribute to a best-in-class research and development institution.
