The Women in Engineering Program Day (WIEP) pays homage to WEPAN’s origins as an organization founded by Women in Engineering Program practitioners.
Our annual WIEP builds on the inaugural theme "calling us to remember our roots" and convenes practitioners and other stakeholders in the advancement of women in engineering to network, share resources, and discuss promising practices for supporting women in engineering.
