IEEE WIE Affinity Groups

Hands surrounding a globe

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 700 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.

Contact your local Affinity Group to discuss volunteer opportunities.
