Professional societies play critical roles in scientists’ professional development, and their awards programs make powerful statements about values. When awards show a gender gap, the implication is that men and women are valued differently by the society. Thus, leaders of disciplinary societies should work to ensure that their recognition processes do not disadvantage women.
We have dedicated this chapter to the memory of Dr. Phoebe S. Leboy, whose driving energy and commitment underlay the entire AWARDS Project. We also are grateful for the support of Janet Bandows Koster of AWIS, who provided sage counsel throughout the project. This work was supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Program (#0930073).
