OIC Permanent Observer Mission to the UN proudly supports the RAISE - 2011-12-01

The RAISE project is designed to increase the status of professional women through enhanced Recognition of the Achievements of Women In Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine. Current programs of The RAISE Project include an interactive website with a listing of available awards categorized by discipline, career level and eligibility by gender. When available, all award recipients are listed since 1981. Further information about recipients is provided through a link with Research Crossroads (www.researchcrossroads.org). The website also analyzes distribution of awards and award recipients by gender and continuously updates data as additional awards and recipients are entered in the database. Future goals are to supply accurate information to facilitate identification of appropriate awards and to provide guidance to potential nominees. The RAISE project is a program of the Society for Women’s (SWHR) Health Research. SWHR mission is to improve the health of all women through research. One of the goals of SWHR has been to recognize women's achievements, since they have been underrepresented in academia and few have been the recipients of awards.
