Welcome to WashU’s WiSTEM!

This is a group for all women scientists at WUSTL. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment, and invite you to join us at our upcoming events.

Women in STEM (WiSTEM) is determined to give women a place to feel comfortable in science and other STEM fields. As such, WiSTEM seeks to give student diversity in DBBS visibility and a voice. WiSTEM hopes to meet the needs of its students through professional development opportunities, campus and community outreach, and inclusive programming for DBBS. WiSTEM hopes to create an inclusive environment for women within the DBBS graduate program as a forum for the unique challenges that female graduate students face within DBBS both on a daily basis and on a larger scale.

The purpose of this organization is to advance and enhance the educational and personal development of its members, develop a sense of community among women in DBBS, create programs and initiatives to address issues facing women in STEM fields in DBBS and the greater St. Louis community, and create a network of individuals helping achieve the mission and vision of WiSTEM.
