The University of Cincinnati Women in Medicine & Science (WIMS) organization, located on the University of Cincinnati's Medical Center campus in Cincinnati, Ohio, is committed to serving all female faculty and trainees from the UC College of Medicine.
Our mission is dedicated to the recruitment, advancement and retention of all women faculty and trainees in the College of Medicine. Our overall goal is to use our collective knowledge to promote change that will ultimately improve the work environment for both women and men within the College of Medicine. Through WIMS, we aspire to increase the number of women faculty new hires, increase the amount of women faculty promotions, and increase the retention of women faculty members by making UC the best place for parents to work. We hope to achieve our goal by encouraging growth, facilitating mentoring, providing opportunities for networking, and teaching skills necessary to achieve professional development for our WIMS members.
Our infrastructure is comprised of our executive committee, sub-committee chairs, and member representatives from the College of Medicine.
