IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Program

The AUTM Women Inventors Committee is pleased to partner with IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) program. IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. They have more than 420,000 members globally and publish nearly a third of the world’s technical literature in all areas of technology. IEEE is the trusted “voice" for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe. IEEE has five core areas of activity: Membership, Conferences, Standards, Education, and Publishing. IEEE WIE serves as one of the largest international professional organizations 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. IEEE WIE’s goal is to facilitate the recruitment and retention of women in technical disciplines globally. They envision a vibrant community of IEEE women and men collectively using their diverse talents to innovate for the benefit of humanity. IEEE WIE is a membership opportunity within IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. 

IEEE WIE strives to promote women engineers and scientists, and inspire girls around the world to follow their academic interests in a career in engineering and science by:
  • Providing assistance with the formation of new IEEE WIE Affinity Groups, and supporting ongoing activities
  • Recognizing the outstanding achievements of women in electrical and electronics engineering through IEEE Awards nominations
  • Organizing receptions at major technical conferences to enhance networking and to promote membership in IEEE WIE
  • Advocating women in leadership roles in IEEE governance, and career advancement for women in the profession
  • Promoting IEEE member grade advancement for women to the membership grades of Senior member and Fellow
  • Facilitating the development of programs and activities that promote the entry into, and retention of, women in engineering programs
  • Administering the IEEE Student-Teacher and Research Engineer/Scientist (STAR) Program to mentor young women in junior and high schools
Another core area is IEEE publishing which focuses on science and technology research that is cited in patents over three times more often than any other publisher. Access to IEEE information means you have the key to technological innovation. The award winning IEEE Women in Engineering Magazine includes profiles of women with successful careers in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics, as well as coverage of educational programs that attract young women to those disciplines. IEEE WIE also offers posters and newsletters to encourage women in engineering.
