For the first time, the IEEE Women In Engineering (WIE) International Leadership Summit will be held in the UK, from the 13th to the 15th of August 2018.
On an international level, the summit offers a rich community that provides professional development for female students in all disciplines. The summit will be hosted by the University of Southampton in Southampton, which is one of the most lively and dynamic cities in the south of England.
The 2018 IEEE WIE International Leadership Summit (ILS) mission is to empower women to choose their own career path and facilitate the recruitment and retention of women in technical disciplines. Our summit is dedicated to promote women in Engineering, Science and Technology and inspire girls around the world to achieve rewarding careers in engineering.
Building on previous themes, the IEEE WIE ILS summit 2018 is a three-day event that focuses on how to achieve inclusivity in diversity. It is designed in partnership with industry for those who are interested in the impact of lack of gender, ethnic and racial diversity on the profitability and success of organisations.
