As a starter, we have just completed a long series of online workshops in cooperation with numerous universities or institutions that have a common ground in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) issues. In total, we have gathered 202 participants who are coming from 33 universities and institution with distribution as follow:
This effort included a series of Job Search and Basic Industrial skills that has successfully invited some notable speakers within the industries, such as:
The workshop was designed to prepare the last semester student and recent graduates for their job application and pre-industrial knowledge, as well as help the participants to dig deeper into the speakers’ experience gained through their career.

For sharing knowledge-purpose, we were recording some of our workshop sessions, detail as follow:
We are now storing all registered universities and institutions in our database. We are committing to start an active engagement between WiME and those communities in order to encourage the creation of a Women in Engineering community in each university/institution and advocate gender issues even more, starting from the ground level or early stage in STEM education.
