Regional and sector hubs in your area
The WISE regional hubs are being set up around the country to give women and men in STEM a local network to get involved with.
These will be local events with inspirational speakers. The local hubs will give people the opportunity to meet easily to discuss issues, share success strategies and also inspire girls at local schools about the great career opportunities available for women in science and engineering. This will help forge strong links between schools, universities and STEM industries in the local area.
If you are interested in setting up a hub with WISE in your area, please contact the Membership Team at email@example.com
See also the WISE Sector Hubs below.
All these groups are based on LinkedIn where you can join up and join in the conversations.

WISE sector campaigns
WISE understands the topics that affect you in your sector!
WISE wants to ensure that we are getting to the heart of the issues for you whether you are involved in the construction, technology, energy or other specific sector. To do this we are setting up a series of LinkedIn groups to allow our members to network and raise questions in a dedicated group of like-minded and knowledgeable individuals.
The WISE Energy Campaign provides an opportunity for people working in the energy sector to network. Women are vastly underrepresented in this sector.
More WISE sector campaigns coming soon
We would like to set up WISE Teachers/ Governors, WISE Maritime and WISE Pharmaceutical over the next 6 months. If you are interested in getting involved with any of these groups please contact the WISE office on 0113 222 6072.
