WRRC: Women in Science & Engineering (W.I.S.E.) Program

The WiSE Program aims to center folx with marginalized gender identities (womxn, womxn of color (WOC), Trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary folx, etc.,) in STEM fields by providing a supportive, gender positive environment in which students work together with mentors to achieve their academic and professional goals. WiSE has focused attention on changing the academic environment for folx with marginalized gender identities in STEM fields by researching barriers to their success and developing programs that reduce or eliminate these barriers. Our programs for students focus on participating in their engineering and science education from the first year college through the graduate level. WiSE recruits participants and mentors in the Fall quarter and uses the Winter and Spring quarters to meet and attend socials and professional development sessions planned and facilitated by the WRRC and campus partners. Please email wrrc@ucdavis.edu if you have questions about the program.

Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year will be open October 2019.

STEMinist in the Workforce

STEMist in the Workforce is a facilitated dialogue based program aimed at providing a safe space for the STEM community to talk about the barriers that STEM folks with marginalized gender identities face everyday. These sessions will include a presentation on a selected topic followed by a facilitated panel and dialogue. Lunch will be provided. To learn more please sign up to receive emails from the STEM-Related Programs Email List. 

We will be recruiting panelists (graduate students, faculty, post-docs, or STEM staff/researchers) for Fall Quarter's Session 1 in the beginning of October. If you are interested in applying to become a panelists, please contact gshah@ucdavis.edu
