Celebrate IEEE WIE Day

IEEE Women in Engineering was formally established on 29 June 1997 and since then WIE has proudly supported an ever-growing community of women in STEM and taken steps to promote change in the industry. We are excited to announce the launch of IEEE WIE Day on 23 June to coincide with ‘International Women in Engineering Day.’

WIE encourages its members, Affinity Groups, and Student Branch Affinity Groups to organize their own events to take place beginning 29 June (The day WIE was established) until 31 July 2023. This is a great opportunity for the local Affinity Groups and the Student Branches to co-organize events.

Let’s encourage each other to support the advancement of women in STEM across the globe!

2023 IEEE WIE Day Theme

Engaging Women in Mitigating Climate Change & Building Climate Resilience

Women’s participation is crucial for lessening the ill-effects of climate change. Their role can be pivotal in anticipating disturbances related to the climate and preparing appropriate responses.

In keeping with the theme, IEEE WIE Day celebrations aim to empower women to bring about positive changes by providing them a platform to showcase their ideas.

Let’s collaborate and connect with a global network of IEEE WIE Members and WIE Volunteers to make this inaugural WIE Day a great success.
