Welcome to Women in STEM (WiSTEM)

Created in early 2019, We are for all women scientists at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL), affiliated with DBBS (Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences). We are committed to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment, and invite you to join us at our upcoming events.


Women in STEM (WiSTEM) is determined to give individuals who identify as women and allies within DBBS and the wider Washington University visibility, a voice, and a place to feel comfortable in science, medicine, and other STEM fields. WiSTEM works to meet the needs of our members through professional development opportunities, campus and community outreach, and inclusive event programming in DBBS. Through these efforts, WiSTEM hopes to create an inclusive environment within DBBS and the wider Washington University community as a forum for the unique challenges that women-identifying trainees face both on a daily basis and on a larger scale.


– Advance and enhance the educational and personal development of our members.

– Develop a sense of community among individuals who identified as women in DBBS and wider Washington University .

– Create programs and initiatives to address issues faced by individuals who identified as women in STEM fields in DBBS and the greater St. Louis community.

– Create a network of individuals, helping to achieve the mission and vision of WiSTEM.
