The JCSW was appointed by the Faculty of Medicine on June 8, 1973, with the charge “to survey yearly the status of women at the Harvard Medical and Dental Schools [and] to suggest ways of increasing the number of women on the Faculty and within the Harvard Medical and Dental Schools.” Since then, we have had a strong history of advocacy and innovation. JCSW work led to the creation of Mother's rooms, the Ombuds' Office, the Office of Work/Life, the HMS Dean's Leadership Awards, and the Child Care Summit.
