Involvement in WiSE will support retention and advancement of women faculty. G.M. Combs (2003) found that both gender and race impact access to networks. Furthermore, Combs found that “having effective informal social networks, with sufficient intimacy and utility, may weigh heavily as a factor for career success.”
