The Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) initiative at the Museum of Science aims to serve as a catalyst of lifelong learning by encouraging girls to fill the STEM pipeline with a focus on equity and inclusion; supporting women in the STEM pipeline by creating a community of professionals through networks, mentoring, and career development; and strengthening a woman’s agency around her own STEM learning to make informed decisions.
The WISE Speaker Series
The Women in Science (WISE) Speaker Series, a biannual forum, enables a diverse audience to learn about the career paths and life experiences of distinguished female STEM professionals, exchange ideas, and build connections. Founded in 1997, the WISE initiative creates a community to support programs designed specifically for girls and women to become inspired, engaged, and empowered in STEM.
The Women and Girls in STEM Month is presented by BNY Mellon, The Vertex Foundation, and General Motors
