Last year was monumental for the University of Oklahoma. The launching of the OU Women in Engineering program has knocked down doors for both female engineers and the future of engineering in America. We would not have been able to do this without YOU.
While the numbers are not official for a few more weeks, we are thrilled to begin this fall semester with a record breaking 900+ women! That's up over 75 from last just last year. We've hosted our First Year Interest Group (FIG) with double the attendance over that year and our mentorship programs are going strong.
We are marching forward to our goal of 50/50, with new programs and a focus on student financial assistance. We need you! We need you to continue to advocate for our program, share our stories and success on social media and with your corporations. Identify great potential students and get them connected with us early. Volunteer your time with our amazing students and share your wisdom. Together, we will change the face of engineering.
Thank you for your support of OU Women in Engineering! Many of you have renewed your 2016 gifts and it means so much to continue to have your support. If you have not renewed your gift for 2017, click here: GIVE TO OUWiE.
Finally, please make plans to join us in our inaugural fundraising event, The Engineering of Wine, on Friday, October 6. Proceeds from ticket sales will support scholarship in the OU Women in Engineering Progam. Click HERE for more info.
