The Women in Science initiative at Emmanuel College (WISE) is dedicated to advancing and promoting women as scientists and science leaders in their chosen fields. The main goal of this initiative is to increase the retention, advancement, and success of women in STEM fields, particularly in leadership positions.

WISE seeks to achieve its goal by creating opportunities for, providing support to, and promoting belonging among women in science, at all stages of their careers at Emmanuel and beyond. Through these initiatives, we hope to create an inclusive, self-sustaining community of Emmanuel women in science.
