IEEE WIE Ottawa Section

IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is a global network that connects nearly 20,000 members and volunteers in over 100 countries. It is dedicated to promote women engineers and scientists, and inspire girls to follow their academic interests in a career in STEM. The Ottawa Section WIE is not an exclusion! Being involved in IEEE WIE Ottawa activities is an opportunity to make some change.

IEEE WIE Ottawa is open to anyone (men and women). We welcome all women engineers, engineering students, and men who support our vision and the women engineers in their lives. We hope you will come along to IEEE WIE Ottawa events and make it an exciting place for new ideas and creating new friendships!
