“The purpose of the Society for Women in Marine Science (SWMS) is to provide a framework for discussion, networking, and mentoring young marine scientists. Our overall mission is to increase the visibility and retention of women in marine science, build inclusive professional networks, and create a community of marine researchers who acknowledge and address the difficulties facing women and minorities in the marine field.”
