IEEE WIE APPS AND EBOOKS
IEEE WIE apps and eBooks aim to inspire and empower young women to become engineers, while celebrating the achievements of women in IEEE in a wide range of technical professions.
The hope is to enhance the appeal of such careers, and show, through example, how engineers benefit humanity.
- Aims to increase the understanding of engineering careers.
- Describes how engineers benefit humanity and make a positive difference.
- Highlights women in IEEE and their stories on how and they were inspired to become engineers, introduces their work environments, and offers advice for women considering a career in engineering.
Profiles include the following information:
- A brief biography
- An explanation of why each woman become a technical professional
- The advice they would like to pass on to young women interested in STEM
- How working as an engineer benefits humanity
The 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.
The eBook 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 provides awareness of engineering career options and how engineering is shaping our future. In an effort to recognize their achievements in engineering, there is a focus on IEEE women engineers doing their work and the contributions they make as technical professionals, including IEEE societies associated with each engineering specialty. Educators and parents can access lesson plans for topics of interest through the TryEngineering.org program, a resource for students, parents, teachers and school counselors.
