WISC is an organization dedicated to the advancement of women and underrepresented minorities in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. We host various outreach events, including our popular Girls’ Science Day, to encourage more women to enter the STEM fields. We also work to support underrepresented minorities already in the STEM fields by hosting discussions, networking socials and happy hours. Check out our events page for more information or check out our calendar for a schedule of upcoming events.
If you’re interested in getting more involved, don’t hesitate to email us or attend one of our upcoming meetings or events. You might also want to check out our currently vacant board positions to see if anything tickles your fancy.
