What is the IEEE Women In Engineering Initiative?
The IEEE Women in Engineering initiative has been established to promote achievements of women professionals in fields of interest to IEEE. WIE promotes membership growth and elevation of its members. Also, WIE gathers and disseminates information on the status of women in technology and science. For further information about international initiatives on IEEE Women in Engineering take a look at their web site.
