WISE membership is available to all organisations committed to increasing the participation, contribution and success of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in the UK.
1. Joining WISE as a member
a) Contact: By joining WISE, you agree to nominate one lead contact who we will communicate with via quarterly email updates, membership renewals and other opportunities that we deem to be beneficial to your organisation, such as speaker opportunities and complimentary tickets for STEM-related events.
If the lead contact changes, please inform your membership manager or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure your organisation gets the most out of its WISE membership.
We welcome lead contacts from all UK sites of member organisations so that we can target local opportunities. Additionally, your employees may register and sign-up to receive WISE communications via the WISE website, direct to their inbox, such as the monthly newsletter: Registration – WISE (wisecampaign.org.uk)
b) Benefits: Membership benefits can be viewed in full here: Membership Benefits – WISE (wisecampaign.org.uk)
Benefits differ depending on which member level you choose. WISE reserves the right to amend the member benefits at any time.
c) Knowledge Sharing Events: Members at Core level and above may have a maximum of two attendees at an in-person knowledge sharing event, subject to availability.
d) Job adverts: The benefit of free job adverts (the number of which varies depending on member level) are for use within your membership year and cannot be carried over to your new membership year.
e) Membership period: Your membership is for 12 months. The membership start and end dates are based on the dates on your invoice. Your membership level cannot be changed during your current membership period. You can change your level upon renewal.
2. Membership renewal
The lead contact will receive an email approximately 2 months before the membership end date requesting confirmation to renew the membership for the following year. Subsequent reminder emails will be sent if confirmation is not received. If we haven’t received a response by the time the membership end date has lapsed, WISE will withdraw all membership benefits, including access to online member-only materials, and removal from the list of members on the WISE website.
3. Payment terms
Payment must be received to guarantee your WISE member benefits are provided. WISE reserves the right to cancel membership and any associated member benefits in the event of non-payment. WISE accepts BACS payments, bank transfers and cheques payable to WISE Campaign C.I.C. All costs are subject to VAT at the standard rate. WISE will review the price of membership each year and in the event of any changes will communicate these in the email requesting renewal confirmation.
WISE membership carries with a 14-day cooling off period. If membership is cancelled for any reason within 14 days of purchase, you will receive a full refund. No WISE membership is eligible for a refund within the minimum term (12 months) after the 14-day cooling off period has expired.
4. Information sharing
a) Online materials: Member-only materials available via the WISE website (dependent on member level) – webinar recordings, post-event reports, etc – are for member organisations only must not be distributed to non-member organisations.
b) In-person events: Photography and video production may take place at in-person events, and these images may be used on future promotional material for WISE events. Please note that by attending the event, you are giving your consent for your image to be used on any WISE promotional materials.
c) WISE logo: Members of WISE are encouraged to use the WISE logo within their communications material, whether printed or electronic, to show their support of the WISE campaign for gender balance in STEM.
WISE reserves the right to exclude from membership, or discontinue the membership of, any organisation or individual whose actions may bring them, and by association, WISE and its members into disrepute.
WISE continually seeks to add value to its members by reviewing its products and services. If you have any questions, please contact your membership manager or email email@example.com
