IEEE Women in Engineering is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The program currently has more than 35,000 members and 1,000 affinity groups worldwide. WIE facilitates the recruitment and retention of women in technical disciplines around the world. It also works to inspire girls to pursue a career in engineering. Both women and men can join.
To mark its 25th anniversary, the group is planning competitions, panels, seminars, and other events this year. It also has established an award to honor men who actively advocate for diversity and inclusion in science, technology, engineering, and math fields.
