The McMaster Women in Engineering Society (McMaster WIE) was established in 2007. Since then, our society has continued to grow student membership and the outreach of our events.
Our aim is to create an environment within McMaster’s engineering faculty where women-identifying students can feel supported in their education. We aspire to create a community that empowers students in their education and inspires growth.
WIE is founded on five main tenets: mentorship, social events, professional development, equity, diversity, and inclusion, and outreach.
WIE runs a mentorship program to encourage networking and collaboration with peers. We use highschool and community events as outreach opportunities to introduce young students to STEM. WIE also provides networking opportunities with industry professionals and runs events throughout the year to continually foster a sense of community. We are continuously working to improve and support diversity amongst engineering students.
All women-identifying students in the faculty of engineering are automatically a member of the Society! We can be contacted through our social media, linked below, and any inquiries may be directed towards our email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
