Women in Engineering

InGARSS 2020- WIE has selected a theme “Women Inspiring Women”, in the light of its importance in the international push to improve women’s rights. IEEE is the world’s largest fraternity within the engineering community, with over 400,000 members in 150 countries around the world. IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is one of the world’s leaders in changing the face of engineering. IEEE WIE global network connects nearly 20,000 members in over 100 countries to advance women in technology at all points in their life and career. IEEE WIE members make lifelong professional relation, acquire influential mentors, and make a difference for the benefit of humanity. Worldwide, women remain underrepresented in the STEM workforce and gender bias persists hence IEEE GRSS wants to encourage professional development of women in GRSS, and it strive to raise awareness and engage the GRSS community through Women Mentoring Women (WMW) program. The main objective of the WMW Program is to provide support for women within GRSS at various career stages ranging from early career to senior professionals.

In alignment with this objective, at InGARSS in WIE program, a half-day session is organized.
