Who We Are

Women in Technology and Science (WITS) is an independent voluntary membership organisation supporting women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to reach their full potential.

Since 1990 WITS has a proven track record in delivering initiatives that improve the recruitment and retention of women in STEM roles. WITS is also a strong advocate for celebrating the past and current successes of women in STEM: WITS Women in STEM 2017 report, WITS Women in STEM 2016 report, WITS Women in STEM 2015 report and WITS Women in STEM 2014 report.

Members come from a broad range of backgrounds within STEM. WITS members range in age and experience from third level students to some of the country’s most eminent senior academics and business people including those who have retired from the workforce. Individual membership is open to women and men throughout Ireland who are involved in any aspect of science, engineering or technology. Affiliate membership is available to students. We also have corporate members.

WITS is proud to have Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland as Patron.
