This WiE site is the website for the IEEE New York Section Affinity group. In a city like New York there must be many women engineers, but the sad fact is that the NY Section WiE has less than fifty active members. We plan to change that starting in 2012. Our goal is to double that number as soon as we can. A little known fact is that student members of the IEEE are automatically a member of any affinity group. But… we would like students to become active members of our group. It is a great place to start working on your professional network, meet with possible mentors. You don’t have to wait until you get a job to start making a difference in the world.
