The WHOI Women's Committee

Established in 1973, the Women's Committee at WHOI is an elected committee responsible for considering matters of special concern to women. 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 eleven-member committee represents women in diverse positions 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.


Contact any member individually, or as a group at Nominations and elections of new members are held annually and announced in the WHOI Headlines and also through the mailing list Contact Eric Cunningham at CIS to have the membership on these lists updated.

Please note that both lists are for internal (WHOI) use only.  Inquiries from outside the Institution should be directed to the Information Office at or to the Human Resources Office at
