Welcome to WCIS

WCIS is devoted to upgrading the status of women in the profession of international studies. WCIS is a place for all women, regardless of sex/gender assignment at birth; WCIS also welcomes allies. WCIS seeks to promote equal opportunities for women in their professional lives, from graduate school admissions through all stages of employment. WCIS also seeks to promote women's professional development, both in academic and non-academic professional careers in international studies.
