NYSCF created the Report Card in conjunction with NYSCF’s IWISE Working Group. It was also one of the 7 actionable strategies put forward by the group.
NYSCF plans to use the report card to evaluate institutions’ commitment to promoting gender equality and to recognize those that exhibit exceptional gender equality practices. The goal of the report card is to encourage institutions to promote gender equality in science, medicine and engineering and to create programs to make it possible.
Recently, NYSCF incorporated the report card into its extramural grant awards processes. Applicants must have their department chairs complete the report card in order to be eligible to apply for funding from NYSCF.
