A new online community for women in the field of engineering is starting October 1st, 2012. The goal of Women in Technology Sharing Online (WitsON) is to create an online community where female members of industry share their experiences and impart advice to undergraduate women studying in STEM fields. This pilot program will last for six weeks, and aims to keep women pursuing STEM degrees. Studies have shown that women are more encouraged to pursue a degree when provided a positive female role model, currently succeeding in her career.
