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.
Inaugurated in November 1990 to actively promote women in science in Ireland, WITS has completed numerous projects, held events and published two books celebrating the lives and achievements of STEM women.
With its 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.
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.
