Women Scientist Advisors (WSA) are women, chosen by female PI colleagues within their Institute, whose role it is to work collectively with WSA representatives from other Institutes across the NIH to advance the scientific careers and scientific contributions of women within the NIH Intramural Research Program. A goal of the WSA is to increase the proportion of women working at NIH in the tenure track program and in senior investigator positions by focusing on recruitment, retention, and recognition of women scientists and fair treatment with respect to salary, space, and other resources.
