Opportunities for Mentoring

Women In Science At Yale (WISAY)

As Women in Science At Yale (WISAY), we are dedicated to promoting the interests of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), supporting women scientists, and advocating for gender equality in all fields.

Historically, only a small fraction of science degrees were awarded to women, but in recent decades women’s overall participation in STEM fields has steadily increased. Today, women earn half of all bachelor’s degrees in science. Women’s involvement in advanced study and careers in STEM fields continues to grow. However, women are still underrepresented in many STEM fields and face significant challenges at the highest levels of these professions. 
 
WISAY seeks to help overcome these disparities by supporting women at all career levels through our four main goals:
 
Advocacy/awareness
Mentoring 
Networking/community building
Career development
