Categories: News

To celebrate the success of 5 years of existance, founders (and authors) Elinor H. Cantor, Margaret M. Faul, Donna M. Huryn, Lara Kallander, Rebecca T. Ruck, and Mary P. Watson recently published a paper in Organic Letters (2023, 25, 40, 7271–7277) entitled “Empowering Women in Organic Chemistry (EWOC) at Five Years: Giving Back and Getting Back”

The article states: “As EWOC just celebrated its fifth conference, it seemed appropriate to look back at where we started and where we are headed, the impacts sought and achieved, the learnings gleaned and applied, and the opportunities to continue to advance our goals and elevate our contributions to the broader organic chemistry community.”

EWOC LogoEmpowering Women in Organic Chemistry (EWOC) held its first and very successful conference in late June at the University of Pennsylvania, with over 175 attendees. Shortly following the first EWOC conference, the Division of Organic Chemistry, in keeping with its efforts to promote inclusion in the chemistry community, broadly defined, agreed to formally partner with EWOC for this and future meetings.
