STAR: a Women in Engineering initiative

The IEEE Student-Teacher and Research Engineer / Scientist (STAR) is a global WIE initiative and is not limited to Region 8. The STAR program aims at showing female school and high school students that pursuing a career in STEM is also an option for them.

Even one volunteer can make a big difference! If encouraging girls to be scientists and engineers is a cause you care about, or if you would like to take action against discouraging young women from entering STEM fields, please visit and drop us an email on
