These databases contain profiles of qualified female scholars in STEM fields. They serve as excellent tools for finding a qualified speaker to give a lecture, more female candidates to apply for an open position in your department, members for special committees or advisory groups, reviewers for journal manuscripts, or almost any other role in academia. The goals of these databases is to facilitate an increase in gender parity in academia and in STEM fields in particular.
