SMC Women in Engineering

IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is the largest international professional organization dedicated
to promoting women engineers and scientists and inspiring girls around the world to follow their
academic interests to a career in engineering. With the membership of women within the IEEE
growing around the globe, the IEEE Women in Engineering was officially formed in 1994 and is
now a committee of the IEEE Member and Geographic Activities Board (see the IEEE WIE
Homepage), with over 450 affinity groups and 15,000 members around the world.

Mission and Vision of IEEE Women in Engineering

The mission of IEEE WIE is to facilitate the recruitment and retention of women in technical
disciplines globally. IEEE WIE envisions a vibrant community of IEEE women and men collectively
using their diverse talents to innovate for the benefit of humanity.

IEEE Women In Engineering at Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (WIE-SMCS)

The Women in Engineering - SMCS liaison was formed by the Board of Governor to inspire,
engage and advance women in Systems, Man, and Cybernetics. The WIE-SMCS committee
organizes a series of periodic events and activities to promote the visibility of women leaders and
to inspire young girls who want to get involved in engineering.

The WIE-SMCS organizes a WIE Luncheon during the IEEE SMC conferences.

The event is an important opportunity to foster discussion on the role of women in Systems, Man,
and Cybernetics, inspire girls and promote collaborations and initiatives to advance women
leadership. One or more guest speakers use to share their experience and history as WIE and
young female researchers have the chance to get advice and discuss informally with senior faculty
members around a free lunch.
