Mission

ASEE Diversity Award

The mission of the SEAS Center for Women in Engineering (WiE) is one of "Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging." WiE seeks to empower GW faculty, staff, students and alumni to become the best engineers they can be. We work to build confidence and knowledge about technology, expand leadership and tech skills, and fully leverage technology in support of academic and professional excellence. 

WiE is uniquely positioned to leverage the resources of SEAS and of the federal research institutes, national policymakers, and technology innovators in and around the nation’s capital to increase our reach and efficacy, and thus ensure that women reach their fullest potential as engineers.
