The Women in Science Policy (WISP) initiative aims to advocate for acknowledging women in science policy to relevant stakeholders and to build a network for female researchers to coordinate matches between mentors and mentees. Last year, the first-ever WISP event took place at STI 2022 in Granada, Spain, and it received many positive feedbacks. This year, the WISP would like to organize a gathering event again at STI 2023 in Leiden, the Netherlands. Not only just providing the networking opportunity this year, the WISP also organizes a special session called “Career Talk!” to answer the needs of the WISP members who want to seek career advice based on the WISP survey results. The panelists are from different sectors and career stages; some have gradually transitioned their career path from researcher to another role in the science system. We hope to demonstrate a variety of career paths to help the members of the WISP to explore more opportunities in the future.
