Stanford's WISE Ventures is a joint initiative of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education and the Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity designed to advance gender equity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields (STEM) fields across the Stanford community. WISE Ventures serves as a catalyst to connect research, resources, and innovation toward ensuring Stanford is the institution of choice for all STEM scholars.
Carol B. Muller, Ph.D., leads WISE Ventures. WISE Ventures programs and resources are frequently of interest and open to graduate students and postdocs at Stanford.
In 2014-2015, in collaboration with VPGE, and building on the longtime success of WISE and WISSH groups, WISE Ventures launched a new program especially for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars:
WISE Research Roundtables
WISE Research Roundtables offer opportunities to hear from and engage with research scientists whose work illuminates ways to advance equity in scientific and technical fields.
WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford
The WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford (WINS) aims to create an engaged Stanford network linking women graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, and alumnae in STEM fields, and their allies and advocates, through regular meetings and communications.
WINS aims to provide all with opportunities to learn from stand-out women in science and engineering about the realities of their lives and work, successes and lessons learned, and to connect individuals with a network of potential mentors, protégés, and other colleagues.
