Greetings from the Women in Science & Engineering SIG!

WISE is here and ready to connect and network with our members. Through social media, webinars, workshops and community outreach, WISE is here to serve and support you. For decades Women have forged ahead in the areas of STEM, which has given NSBE Women in Science and Engineering Special Interest Group (WISE SIG) a platform to affect change by giving everyone a voice to be heard.

Our mission is to Enlighten, Engage, and Empower not only NSBE women in STEM but foster relationships and collaborate with communities and institutions outside of NSBE. We also want to continue to build and establish WISE as a foundational special interest group for both NSBE Collegiate and professional members.
