What we do for students?

  • Advocating: speaking for and with women in STEM, developing and improving policy and practice for us all.
  • Acting: campaigning for and with women in STEM to inform and educate about women’s participation in STEM.
  • Connecting: women in STEM at all levels, from students to professions, across all areas, from the life sciences to computing and engineering and in business and academia.

Why join WITS?

To get to know women in STEM and to contribute to women’s participation in STEM by connecting, acting and advocating for women as they learn, work and take part in STEM. It’s an opportunity at college level to get to know other women across science, technology, engineering and maths.

At WITS events you get to meet WITS members, women working in STEM, and opportunities to develop and establish your own network.

You can get involved by running WITS events e.g., pizza parties or by joining a subcommittee or by writing about your interests and student events for the WITS website.
