networking event

The Women in Science Initiative (WiSI) is a community of graduate students, postdocs, and staff of every gender that is fostering the success of women in STEM fields.

We host several events per semester that encourage members of every department in the sciences to interact and address issues surrounding graduate education and careers in STEM. The topics addressed are not limited to issues affecting women, but rather are issues that all graduate students in STEM face.

Everyone is welcome at our events!

Importantly, other universities nationwide have graduate student organizations similar to WiSI. Due to our shared interests, in 2017 Brandeis WiSI joined efforts with 8 other New England Universities to form New England Graduate Women in Science and Engineering (NE GWiSE).  NE GWiSE is an alliance between groups of graduate women in STEM from universities across New England.  It was formed as a way to network with women's groups in the New England area, pool our resources, and hold larger, more impactful events.
