About Us

WISER is a sub-community of WISEST aimed at serving the needs of early-career professionals.
The WISER Network is designed to connect early-career women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) with each other and with the information, resources, support, and professional development opportunities they require to advance in their careers.
To support career advancement and retention of women in STEM through networking, interactions with peers and mentors, information exchange, and professional development activities.

WISER members are from academia, industry, and government roles at any stage of their careers in STEM fields.
WISER welcomes both mentors at advanced stages of their careers and mentees who are at the early-career stages.
WISER has “Mentor in Residence” volunteers who are more advanced in their careers and are prepared to offer mentoring.
WISER activities are overseen by the WISER Executive Committee.

Information sessions, discussions groups, networking activities, and professional development workshops for the WISER community are to be planned monthly. The topics of these sessions are to be decided in discussions with the members of the WISER community to determine the needs and critical issues. WISER executive will then decide, organize, and execute the chosen activities.
