DANWISE is a non profit organization that advocates for and supports women in academia, industry, government and non-profit organizations, in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine (STEMM), Humanities and Social Science.

We develop talent and leadership skills, build professional networks, provide mentorship and create platforms for public engagement. Our initiatives aim to cultivate women leaders of the future.



DANWISE’s main vision is to develop strategies that will reduce the gender gap in STEMM, Humanities and Social Sciences and to ensure that all women in these fields can achieve their full potential. These changes will be made through initiatives and programs that aim to

(i) increase awareness of gender imbalance in STEMM areas;

(ii) develop leadership and professional skills to enable women in these fields to achieve their full potential and advance in their career;

(iii) improve hiring of women in higher academic and industry positions;

(iv) bring forth new policies that improve gender diversity at the universities and in the industry.



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.
