Women of Color Research Network (WoCRn)

The National Institutes of Health invites you to participate in the Women of Color Research Network (WoCRn), supported by the NIH Working Group on Women in Biomedical Careers. The Working Group addresses challenges faced by all women entering and advancing in scientific careers, including women of color.

The WoCRn is a new social media site for women of color and anyone who values diversity in the scientific workforce.The primary goal of WoCRn is to serve as an instrument of outreach. We use this site to promote community, provide information, and facilitate access to colleagues and mentors who can offer advice on career development and navigating the NIH grants process.  Members include biomedical professionals with significant research experience, early-career scientists, and students and fellows just starting out.  There are currently over 270 members of this network, and membership is growing every day!

We invite you to join the WoCRn today. To register, go to  and click on “JOIN NOW.”
