The Fall 2019 WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford (WINS) program features Gilda A. Barabino, Dean and Daniel Berg '50 & Frances H. Berg Professor, Grove School of Engineering, City College of New York (CCNY).

Dean Barabino holds appointments in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering and the CUNY School of Medicine. Prior to joining CCNY, she served as Associate Chair for Graduate Studies and Professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory. At Georgia Tech, she also served as the inaugural Vice Provost for Academic Diversity. Prior to her appointments at Georgia Tech and Emory, she rose to the rank of Full Professor of Chemical Engineering and served as Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Northeastern University.  She is a noted investigator in the areas of sickle cell disease, cellular and tissue engineering, and race/ethnicity and gender in science and engineering. Dr. Barabino received her B.S. degree in Chemistry from Xavier University of Louisiana and her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Rice University. 

She is an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering and an elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), both of which she has served as president. Her many honors include an honorary degree from Xavier University of Louisiana, the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring, AIChE’s Award for Service to Society, and the Pierre Galetti Award, AIMBE’s highest honor. Dr. Barabino is a member of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Advisory Committee for Engineering, the congressionally mandated Committee on Equal Opportunities in Science and Engineering, the National Academies Committee on Addressing Sickle Cell Disease and the National Academies Committee on Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine. She has served on the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Advisory Dental and Craniofacial Research Council and the National Academies Committee on the Impact of Sexual Harassment in Academia. Dr. Barabino consults nationally and internationally on STEM education and research, diversity in higher education, policy, workforce development and faculty development. She is the founder and Executive Director of the National Institute for Faculty Equity.

The WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford (WINS) links women graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and alumnae in science, engineering, and mathematics fields, and their allies and advocates (all genders and gender-identities welcome!), through quarterly meetings and communications. WINS aims to provide all with an opportunity to learn from stand-out women in these fields about the realities of their lives and work, successes and lessons learned, and to connect individuals with a network of potential mentors, protégés, and other colleagues.

We recognize that Monday, September 30, 2019 falls in the midst of Rosh Hashanah, a significant Jewish holiday marking the start of the new Jewish year, and a time for reflection and anticipation, with joyous celebration. Thank you for your understanding of the challenges involved in optimal scheduling.
