IEEE WIE apps and eBooks aim to inspire and empower young women to become engineers, while celebrating the achievements of IEEE women in a wide range of technical professions.

The hope is to enhance the appeal of such careers, and show through example how they can benefit humanity.

This publication:

  1. Aims to increase young womens’ understanding of engineering careers
  2. Describes how engineers benefit humanity and make a positive difference
  3. Introduces IEEE women and their stories on how and why they were inspired to become engineers, teaches about their work environments, and offers advice for women considering a career in engineering

The profiles presented will include the following information:

  1. A brief biography
  2. An explanation of why each woman become a technical professional
  3. The advice they would like to pass on to young women interested in STEM
  4. How working as an engineer benefits humanity

This IEEE Women in Engineering ebook is a global resource and should be shared and disseminated to attract and retain students with an emphasis on women as engineering professionals.

This publication is intended to support one of IEEE’s 3-5 years goals: The public will increasingly value the role of IEEE and technical professionals in enhancing the quality of life and environment. This resource will provide awareness of engineering career options and how engineering is shaping our future. In an effort to recognize their achievements in engineering, we will focus on IEEE women engineers doing their work and the contributions they make as technical professionals.

Our text references the IEEE societies associated with each engineering specialty. Educators and parents will have access to lesson plans for topics of interest through the TryEngineering.org program, a resource for students, parents, teachers and school counselors.

Additional IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) resources include posters highlighting modern-day engineering role models as well as establishing IEEE WIE’s expertise in promoting women in engineering.

IEEE WIE Posters are available for download or you may contact women@ieee.org for printed copies.

Finally, this publication will be an ever-growing resource. IEEE WIE members interested in having their profile included in future editions should send an email to women@ieee.org

The Internet of Women: Accelerating Culture Change

By: Nada Anid, New York Institute of Technology, USA; Monique J. Morrow, Cisco and IEEE WIE Volunteer; Laurie Cantileno, Cisco; Rahilla Zafar, ConsenSys

Female scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians worldwide are making historic contributions to their fields. The modern workforce is closer to gender-equal than it has ever been, and many efforts are in place to support further progress. The Internet of Women provides an exciting look at personal narratives and case studies of female leaders and cultural shifts around the globe that illustrate this promising trend.

eBook: Women in Engineering Compilation Volume 1: Books 1-4


The first four of IEEE-USA’s award-winning Women in Engineering E-Books are now available in a specially priced first compilation volume. Introduced in 2014, the IEEE WIE e-book series has a distinct purpose: to help narrow the gender gap between the numbers of men and women in engineering, by providing the stories of female role models at various phases of their careers. Except for the first volume, which is an overview of women in STEM occupations, each book is a first-hand account of how a notable contemporary woman engineer built her career.
