Women in Computer Science

ComputerScience.org was created to help meet the demand for qualified computer scientists in the workforce. They provide an in-depth overview of the field – including education – and serve as an introduction for the next generation of programmers, engineers and developers. Recently, they created a guide that covers the current state of women in computer science along with how to get more interested in the field. It also includes resources for women who want to get into computer science such as schools with the highest women graduates in the field and scholarships for women in computing. For more information, you can find the resource here: http://www.computerscience.org/resources/women-in-computer-science/

New York Women in STEM: Networking Reception and Forum

As a represented group of New York Women in STEM (NYWiSTEM), WISC would like to invite you to the our celebratory launch event to meet fellow women in science from the greater NYC metropolitan area!

At this inaugural event, we will solicit ideas for future NYWiSTEM and Science Alliance events and programming.  An expert panel of women scientists will also provide insight on opportunities, experiences, and mentors that helped to propel their careers.

Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. All women graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are welcome to attend.

NYWiSTEM is a group that advocates for the professional and personal goals of women graduate and postdoctoral fellows in the greater NYC metropolitan region.

By participating in NYWiSTEM , you become a vital part of a network of support and mentorship across institutions, receive access to professional development opportunities, and have a forum for ongoing discussions of concerns specific to the early stages of a women scientist’s career.

Can’t make it? Submit your ideas at our online forum on the NYWiSTEM webpage.

NYWiSTEM is supported by Science Alliance, a program of The New York Academy of Science, which helps young scientists—in New York City and beyond—attain successful and rewarding careers. More than 2,500 women from greater NYC’s academic institutions are already partners of Science Alliance. You may already be a member! Check here to see if your institution or organization is on the list.

Discussion Series: Gender Bias in STEM

WISC Discussion Series
Gender Bias in STEM
Tue, Oct. 22, 6pm, Lerner Hall. Room 502

A woman scientist, A woman engineer, …, A woman woman!
Does being a woman impact career choice and experience?
Do you know your rights of being equally employed?

Come and talk with women in science.
Drink and snacks will be provided!


Get Involved!

The sun is blazing, the days are longer, the line at Joe’s is shorter… must be summer! But WISC isn’t heading to the Hamptons – our officers are busy planning for the 2013-14 school year.

And we’re always looking for new faces! Want to get involved? Interested in bolstering your CV with a leadership position, or have a unique skill to share with the group?  Shoot us an email: wisc.group@gmail.com.

We welcome any men, women, postdocs, PhDs, professional students, etc. who share our commitment to supporting women in science at Columbia and across NYC.
