WiNUP is a professional organization committed to fostering an inclusive business environment for members and guests. Our mission does not support any particular political or religious view and we refrain from actions that create a non-inclusive environment.
For the young girls of today, the future holds limitless possibilities. However, for some of those girls who lack female role models, career opportunities in the STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math — seem out of reach. According to the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP), though the number of girls in high school taking high level math and science courses is at par with their male peers, by the time they get to college, the number of females pursing degrees in math and statistics, computer science and engineering decreases. The number of women in the workforce with STEM careers are typically low. For instance, according to NGCP, only 8.8 percent of electrical engineers are women.
The over 300 members of WiNUP, dedicated to the advancement of women in utility professions, hope to change those negative attitudes. WiNUP adopted STEM education in young girls as its national platform in the spring of 2014. Local WiNUP chapters around the United States will launch various initiatives throughout the next few months to encourage the next generation to consider careers in the utility field.
