“W-to-W Tech Ideas Dedicated to Women” Competition

For the 25th Anniversary of IEEE WIE, we have an opportunity to highlight the strengths, knowledge, ideas, and creativity that help solve technical problems. Do you have an innovative idea you would like to submit to the competition? We would like to hear and read about it, upload your ideas by 5th of November 2021 for review, and a possible opportunity to win a trip to the IEEE WIE International Leadership Conference in San Diego USA in June 2022 to present your idea.

While the COVID 19 pandemic has been difficult for many around the world, the pressure has been particularly heavy on women. Many have lost their jobs or lagged behind in their career/profession as in most cases women are seen as the main caregivers for children and aging parents. Alarming situations have emerged because of the pandemic which enhanced a type of reality that many women are facing.  There has been an increase of domestic violence, sexual assault, and an increased number of suicides among women.

As a part of our 25th Anniversary celebration, WIE is urging all members working in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, education, and innovation to contribute with creative ideas to solve problems affecting women.

WIE members from IEEE societies and Affinity Groups are invited to present their ideas on the following areas:

•Smart childcare and education
•Elderly communication and senior safe living
•W-medicine, mental health aid, and security for women

•Sustainable environment solutions in rural and urban areas

The submitted ideas will be evaluated by a panel formed by scientists. Ideas will be presented at the “Around the World 25th Anniversary day” Virtual event. Winners will be invited to present their ideas in a dedicated session at the 2022 International Leadership Conference in San Diego in June 2022.

Upload your ideas for review, and a possible opportunity to participate in the series.
