Our Programs

Our programs highlight the work and achievements of women in science and engineering and create forums where members can network with their peers in a range of STEM fields. Our members develop friendships with other women in technical fields and sometimes find mentors and sponsors.

STEM Outreach & Conferences

One of New Mexico Network for Women in Science and Engineering’s core missions is to improve the lives of young women by empowering them to see themselves as future participants in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers.


Women’s scientific contributions continue to be under-recognized. Despite the comparable quality of work, women receive far fewer influential awards than their male counterparts and the prestige that accompanies those. Although the gender gap is closing on the number of awards women garner, they are still grossly underrepresented among preeminent award recipients.
