U.S. Embassy in partnership with the Department of Science & Technology, Government of India and the Indo-U.S. Science & Technology Forum organized workshops in 2009, 2010, and 2011 to address women in science issues. The 2009 and 2010 workshops focused on discussing opportunities and challenges for women in science in both countries, and the role of the government. The 2011 WIS workshop identified areas for U.S.-India collaboration on women in science issues including organizing joint training programs for women scientists on leadership, indoor air pollution and occupational health hazards. The workshop on December 10, 2012 shared U.S. and India best practices for enabling, retaining, and promoting women in science, and creating opportunities for networking and mentoring for women scientists in both countries.
