iWISE - Indian Women in Science and Engineering
Our goals are broadly to:
- Bring together a group of women who are already in the Sciences and Engineering to share ideas on their day to day lives, both professionally and personally.
- Recognize that this group of women is already in a very privileged position being in a difficult field of study and coming from what are really prestigious institutions in the country in order to pay our success forward.
- Encourage leadership by activities in the local community including local-area schools where our members serve as role-models or just plain mentors who take on a very low-profile but emphatic role in encouraging other children and women to consider our field of study
- Be an inclusive group that extends across several institutions that agree to our basic tenets of a non-authoritarian setup, facilitation roles and active community involvement.
