DANWISE is a non profit organization that represents women from academia, industry and business that span the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) and Humanity areas.
DANWISE’s main vision is to create change that reduces the gender gap in the STEMM and humanities areas. These changes will be made through initiatives and programs that aim to:
i.) increase awareness of gender imbalance in STEMM areas,
ii.) improve hiring of women in higher academic and industry positions, and
iii.) bring forth new policies that improve gender diversity at the Universities and in the industry.
LOCATION OF THE SOCIETY
The Society is national with established chapters in the Copenhagen and Aarhus areas. However, DANWISE wishes to make its mark in other Danish cities and therefore if you feel that you could contribute in the running of local chapters elsewhere, then please contact DANWISE. We would be happy to hear from you.
