IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is a global network of IEEE members and volunteers dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists and inspiring girls around the world to follow their academic interests in a career in engineering and science. Their mission is to connect, support, and inspire women and girls worldwide, and facilitate their recruitment and retention in STEM fields, fostering technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.

Learn more about all activities and opportunities ongoing for women in STEM as well as WIE sponsors for leadership training and networking via its annual International Leadership Conference, Regional Leadership Summits, Regional and IEEE Society sponsored events, and various webinars on the IEEE WIE website.

IEEE NPSS has taken the WIE pledge:

“IEEE WIE pledges to work towards gender-diversified panels at all IEEE meetings, conferences, and events, including our own.”

NPSS Sponsored WIE Events

The NPSS sponsors events at our NPSS conferences to enhance networking in our technical communities, to provide opportunities for career mentoring, and to promote work/life balance.
