Established in 1973, the Women's Committee at WHOI is an elected committee responsible for considering matters of special concern to women.  Its primary charge is to be a forum for the ideas and concerns of women associated with WHOI (see Charter below).  Each member is charged to make herself aware of pertinent issues and to be accessible to the women around her, to better represent them in the committee.

The eight-member committee represents all women at the Institution: Joint Program Students, Post-docs, members of the Scientific, Technical, and Exempt Administrative Staffs, and members of the Graded Administrative and Research Staffs.  The group meets monthly for discussion of current concerns and for planning occasional seminars and annual activities such as:

  • Celebration of Women's History Month in March
  • Coordination and selection of the Linda Morse-Porteous Award
  • Annual social event with guest speaker
  • Coffee hours
The annual election for the two-year term takes place in the fall. The monthly meetings are open to all employees, and the minutesof the meetings are posted on the website.

Members of the Committee may be contacted by sending email to the Women's Committee mailing list as: womens-committee@whoi.edu.  Please note that this list is for internal (WHOI) use only.  Inquiries from outside the Institution should be directed to the Information Office at information@whoi.edu or to the Human Resources Office at hr@whoi.edu.
