WesWIS H(er)story

Our own steering committee member Madeleine Dickman '23 wrote an article about WesWIS's history and future for the Inclusion in STEM blog.

After only my first few weeks at Wesleyan I had become part of a strong and dedicated community of other female-identifying individuals in STEM who were passionate about creating opportunities for each other and carving out a spot for other students like me.

I am now entering my seventh semester on the steering committee for WesWis, as it is fondly called, and have strived to continue building the dedicated and tight-knit community that I entered into as a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed first year only three years ago. However, it wasn’t until I started writing this article that I realized I wasn’t familiar with the WesWis community that had existed for over a decade before I arrived.
