The WCPS is a place where you can meet great scholars, find new friends and colleagues to help you, and learn about how the profession works. Many of the top scholars in the profession have benefitted from the WCPS and the networks, camaraderie and support it provides women. The hard data all suggest the on-going need for such support, with women under-represented in the professoriate (27% of the full professors nationally) and under-paid (85% of salaries to comparable male colleagues).

To join WCPS you can complete and submit the form located below. We especially encourage new scholars to join.

In addition, we are building a public database/speaker’s list of women with their contact information and area of specialization. All you need do to be listed in our database is to check off your area of expertise at the bottom of the form below. We also ask your help in spreading the word that we are establishing this database.
