Advancing Women in Science and Engineering (AWiSE)

AWiSE_small_logo

A core belief of the BSC is that the best innovation occurs when there is collaboration across multiple disciplines and perspectives.  The AWiSE program was created in response to the observation that while women comprise a significant percent of the student population in science and engineering graduate programs, they’re underrepresented in leadership roles within science and engineering companies.  The BSC aims to provide a forum for candid conversations to address these concerns and offer training, education, and mentorship to encourage graduates who enter the professional sector to value diversity and its impact on innovation and ultimately break down existing gender barriers.

AWiSE OFFERS:

EVENTS to raise exposure of successful female leaders within the industries of science and engineering

MENTORING to increase support of next generation leaders and promote exchange across career stages

INSPIRATION to encourage men and women in all career stages to value diversity

RESOURCES to educate about and prepare for career challenges.
