The Council on Superconductivity and CWsWISE (Centennial Women Supporting Women in Science & Engineering) work in unison to organize events including workshops, discussion-lunches, and presentations. The goals of our efforts are to promote awareness of deleterious issues (e.g. implicit bias) and to challenge & foster our technical community to be socially responsible and conscious of their actions.


New Stat! The ASC 2018 conference attracted just over 10% female attendees

Recent and Upcoming Activities: 

  • Please join us at the upcoming ASC 2020 Diversity and Inclusion in Science and Engineering Events.
  • Our last event was held at the Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) 2018 and hosted ~50 attendees. At this event, we explored relevant topics and needs of the technical community and collected their recommendations. We are working on addressing these items during future events.
