Women are generally under-represented in the fields of engineering and science, in academia and in the engineering and science professions. Nevertheless many women have contributed to the diverse fields of engineering and science today and historically. IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is a global network of IEEE members and volunteers dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists, and inspiring girls around the world to follow their academic interests in a career in engineering and science.
