“30 Years of Eli Lilly Awards: Career paths taken”


The ACS Women Chemists Committee (WCC) and Eli Lilly and Company sponsor a program to provide funding for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral female chemists to travel to meetings to present the results of their research. Awards are made based on scientific merit and financial need. Award winners are provided networking opportunities at ACS national meetings where the WCC hosts a poster session and reception for awardees. In addition, awardees are invited to the WCC Women in the Chemical Enterprise Breakfast and WCC Luncheon where they receive recognition. Through this program, WCC and Eli Lilly and Company continue to increase the participation of women in the chemical sciences. At the Women in Chemical Enterprise Breakfast in Orlando, we have invited previous Eli Lilly Award winners to discuss their career paths and answer questions.
