Women in Engineering Affinity Group
Men and women in this affinity group work collectively to promote women engineers and scientists, whilst conceptualizing and promoting networking, mentoring and professional involvement of women for the benefit of humanity.
IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is one of the largest international professional organizations dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists, and inspiring girls around the world to follow their academic interests in a career in engineering.
IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) provides members with the opportunity to network at a local level through IEEE WIE affinity groups. Opportunities include coordinating events, mentoring, or serving as an officer. Currently, there are over 800 IEEE WIE Affinity Groups worldwide that organize and host diverse activities including guest speakers, workshops, and/or seminars. If you are interested in volunteering with IEEE WIE, the best place to get started is with your local IEEE WIE Affinity Group. If there is no Affinity Group in your area, you can start one in your Section or Student Branch by recruiting six other IEEE Members willing to be part of the Affinity Group and then submitting a petition.
WIE affinity group aims to nurture and support diversity in engineering. Our view is holistic – peace and satisfaction can be gained through a balance of career, lifestyle and community. We also aim to work with other groups with similar goals.
Our goal is to facilitate the recruitment and retention of women in technical disciplines globally. We envision a vibrant community of IEEE women and men collectively using their diverse talents to innovate for the benefit of humanity.
