At scientific meetings, scientific review panels, and university symposia/lecture series, a balanced gender representation at the podium or in the review process makes for a better and more interesting outcome.
To facilitate identifying outstanding women scientists, WICB provides an extensive list of speakers who have won awards, given Symposium talks at ASCB meetings or who have organized Minisymposia in their respective research areas. WICB will provide this list of outstanding women (categorized by research area) to facilitate the process of choosing women as conference invitees or panel reviewers.

Alternatively, conference organizers need only provide a brief description of the planned conference/symposium/lecture series/review panel. Within three days, WICB will respond with names of women who are vetted speakers and trusted colleagues in that research area. Contact email@example.com, Subject: Speaker Referral
