The objective of the Women in Engineering Division (WIED) of the American Society for Engineering Education is to study, promote and improve the role of women in the professions of engineering and engineering technology through collection of data, publications, presentations at appropriate meetings, sponsorship of conferences, and similar activities. We welcome male and female members with interest in promoting these goals. For more details on the ASEE please check http://www.asee.org. WIED teleconferences are held monthly and you can follow our progress here.
We have added a new resource page to empower majority stakeholders to become advocates for women/minorities in STEM. Official advocacy tips will be disseminated every 2 to 3 weeks with the WIED newsletters. Additional tips and comments are welcome for inclusion by emailing the webmaster. To read more, click here.
