The Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Forum brings together female high school students, faculty and students from area universities and colleges, and accomplished women from the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
The first half of the evening consists of a Mentoring Dinner where attendees can network with each other – this is really an opportunity for the students with an interest in STEM to talk one on one with and hear stories and advice from female professionals and college students.
Following the dinner is a Public Panel Discussion featuring a panel of female distinguished STEM professionals from across the country. Past panelists include: the retired Chairman and CEO for the DuPont Company; an Aerospace Engineer from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; and active and retired executives from IBM, Merck, Mars Inc., Daiichi Sankyo, and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
