The Women in STEM Database at MIT (WiSDM) is an initiative designed to promote the visibility of women in our academic community. The goal of WiSDM is to provide a curated searchable online database of MIT women, making it easier to find talented and diverse speakers for conference talks, panels, news stories, and outreach events. 

WiSDM includes MIT faculty, postdocs, research staff, and graduate students from all STEM fields. In addition to including each listed speaker's areas of technical expertise, the database also includes information about non-technical expertise, ranging from science policy to entrepreneurship to outreach. WiSDM's searchable database makes it easy to find qualified and talented speakers for your event.

Stay up to date by signing up for our newsletter and searching our regularly updated database.
