IEEE NTC WIN/DEI Leadership Series

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council Women in Nanotechnology (WIN)/DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) leadership series will begin on August 18 and run through Sept. 5, 2022.

IEEE WIN/WIE/DEI Leadership series is a set of interviews with international leaders promoting women /men /DEI in leadership, women /DEI development, and inspiring young engineers to take an academic /nanotechnology interest in engineering. Our main focus is to promote women and go beyond gender balance.

The IEEE NTC  Women in nanotechnology  leadership  series highlights accomplishments in nanotechnology fields. The interviews of the leaders in the series provide a broad overview of multi-faceted contributions to nanotechnology engineering over the past years and future trends. Each subsequent program is dedicated to illuminating research and achievements in key, targeted areas of contemporary nanotechnology engineering and IEEE endeavors. The goal for the series is to raise awareness of the pivotal work these leaders are undertaking in areas of keen importance to our global community in order to inspire the young generation.
