WiLS – and WiLS members – totally want to know what you’re doing. Each month, we send out short surveys asking you one (maybe two) very specific questions. Answers are public (as Google form responses) so we can all read about the amazing things you are doing and tell the world about them. And here are the archives of those questions and responses.
