History

INWES is the International Network for Women Engineers and Scientists. It is a global non-profit organization that serves to strengthen the capacity of individuals and organizations related to women in STEM worldwide through the exchange of information, networking, and advocacy activities to increase the presence of women in STEM worldwide and to be a responsible voice and influence on scientific issues for the benefit of society and the environment. The International Conference for Women Engineers and Scientists (ICWES) had been taking place for twelve years before delegates decided to create a network of organizations that represent women in STEM fields in 2001. In 2003, INWES was declared a non-profit corporation under Canadian law. INWES continues to exist as an organization and it sponsors workshops, conferences, and research, publishes a newsletter, and hosts regional meetings throughout the world.
