Herstory:

The InWomen’s Group began meeting virtually and in person in 2007 and now consists of more than 200 members from over 40 countries worldwide. In 2008 and 2009, the InWomen’s network sponsored a series of symposia as part of the NIDA International Forum. Since 2010, InWomen’s has been hosting its own satellite conference at the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) annual meeting (http://tinyurl.com/InWConfAgendas). In 2012, selected presenters from the 2011 conference were invited to contribute to a special section of the Journal of Substance Abuse and Rehabilitation (Vol. 3, Suppl. 1,  http://tinyurl.com/2012InWomenSuppl).

 

There are now over 200 members from over 40 countries:
