About The Program

EWIS aims at creating a strong career pipeline; at bridging the gaps for women in the STEM workforce, including academia, industry and government; and at promoting women in the STEM disciplines. This initiative hopes to enhance the retention and recruitment of women in STEM disciplines and workforce through building a mentorship network and providing professional development opportunities for women students and scholars in the STEM fields.  

Although targeted towards expanding opportunities for women in the STEM workforce and academia, EWIS is gender inclusive and welcomes students and scholars from across disciplines to benefit from EWIS professional development opportunities and the mentorship network.
