About

weSTEM at NYU Abu Dhabi was established to support women interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by providing a platform of shared knowledge, encouragement, and inspiration. Our mission is to increase the participation and success of women interested in pursuing degrees and careers in the STEM fields at our university and in the region. We strive to achieve this mission by focusing on three areas:

1

Creating an empowering community that allows its members to receive and offer support as well as grow along each other.

2

Preparing students for their future careers by providing networking and leadership development opportunities, mentoring and resources.

3

Providing young girls with exposure to STEM fields through workshops and conferences to spark their interest in these fields.
