Women In Engineering (WIE)

Welcome to the official Site of IEEE Women in Engineering in Canada

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 the IEEE WIE website.

If you are interested in getting involved with IEEE Women in Engineering contact the IEEE Canada WIE committee chair.
