About the Women in STEM Knowledge Center



Our Vision

Root causes for women's underrepresentation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields cross disciplines, whether in engineering, physics, computer science, or mathematics. Creating a space to share resources and encourage connections among women in STEM advocates is an effective way to increase visibility and broaden the conversation about advancing women across STEM disciplines. By shining a light on this conversation, we invite and encourage individuals and organizations to become catalysts for change along with us.


History of the WSKC

The Women in STEM Knowledge Center (WSKC) began as the WEPAN Knowledge Center (WKC). The WKC officially launched in June 2009, as part of a project funded by the National Science Foundation, granted in 2007 to WEPAN. WEPAN recognized the need for a knowledge center to enable researchers and practitioners to quickly and easily locate resources important to their work without reinventing the wheel or relying on outdated information. Such information was sometimes difficult to locate—published across many diverse organizations, websites, educational institutions, and individual project sites.

Knowing that root causes of women's underrepresentation spans STEM fields, and the multi-disciplinary impact of gender in STEM issues, WEPAN leaders decided to share knowledge center information and resources with the larger STEM community.
