The Air Force Technical Applications Center's (AFTAC) Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) Symposium is a diversity initiative that began in 2013. This symposium was established to bring attention and highlight the value that gender diversity brings to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce.

The WiSE Symposium encourages diversity in the STEM fields by providing inspirational speakers, engaging discussions for both men and women, and the ability to professionally network with others within STEM supported fields. 

Another element that WiSE focuses on is the ability to encourage mentoring and coaching efforts in the STEM fields that actively communicate issues and solutions that affect the STEM workforce.

For 2019, AFTAC's focus for the WiSE Symposium is to inspire the next STEM generation, through interactive demonstrations, inspirational speakers and promoting STEM through the educational hierarchy. In addition to this experience, representatives from leading defense agencies, educational institutions and supporting industries will be present at this symposium.
