Promote women leadership in Science,Technology, Engineering, and Entrepreneurship, bridge the gap between Science and Business, and provide a forum to learn, connect and lead.
Compared to the existing similar groups, WiSTEE group is aiming to fill two gaps: (1) Focusing on the advancement of junior and mid-career women in STEE, ie, career growth rather than career entry. (2) Women Entrepreneurship in Science and Technology.
