Who are we?
The AWiSE program was created by UCLA graduate students in response to the observation that while women comprise a significant percent of the student population in science and engineering graduate programs, they are underrepresented in leadership roles in academia and industry. AWiSE 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
