Women of VISE

Women of VISE (WoV) is a group of women who gather monthly to foster community, discuss translational research, and promote the success of women in the STEM fields.

What is WoV?

WoV provides an opportunity for women to support one another and collectively access the unique challenges we face in our fields as women. WoV will offer monthly gatherings and speakers with an emphasis on building community while connecting with others in science, medicine, and engineering. WoV will also cultivate professional collaborations, networking, and informal mentor-ship with successful women in the field. Through social gatherings, workshops on mental health, and events on navigating work environments, we will promote wellness among members.

Monthly events will include round table talks, coffee talks, industry/alumna/faculty speaker talks, movie screening, career workshops, social events, keynote speakers and outreach.
