The year 2022 will mark the 25th anniversary of IEEE Women in Engineering and we are planning a full year of celebrations and key moments to reflect on the great progress and achievements made by great women in STEM within the IEEE. We also plan to celebrate the great men who consistently support women along the way. The WIE 25th anniversary Sub-committee is ready to announce the portfolio of activities which will start with concerted reflections by the past and current WIE chairs, who have led the Committee since its formation in 1997, with a special interview session this year.”
Another key event will involve the participation of WIE scientists and innovators who will have an opportunity to showcase their work and compete to present it in a dedicated session at the 2022 IEEE WIE International Leadership Conference (ILC).  Also, to be noted a special 25th anniversary virtual seminar series with “Extraordinary Science by Extraordinary Women” from IEEE Societies will kick off in January 2022.  This sample of events is far from being exhaustive.  Societies and Affinity Groups in all regions will have celebratory events.  The award-winning IEEE Women in Engineering Magazine will highlight the anniversary activities in December 2022.
