About Us

Our Story

WinE was formed in April 1999 through the vision and support of Ing. Prof. K.A. Andam (of Blessed Memory), the 30th President of the Ghana Institute of Engineers to serve as a platform for women engineers to engage and support the next generation of female engineers in Ghana. The formation of this platform became necessary at the time when statistics indicated the need for a direct approach to issues such as the following:

  • Female child competes equally well with the male child and in many cases excels during the lower level of education
  • The number of girl child enrolment in higher education and most especially in Science, Technology and Mathematics subjects however decreases
  • The thinking is that “girls aren’t any good at mathematics, science & technology”, girls don’t have the physical strength for engineering, etc”
  • The days of physical engineering are gone.
  • Society and business in particular need to worry about the lack of representation of females in science, engineering and technology
  • Gender stereotyping leads us to ignore at least half the potential candidates for recruitment into these male-stereotyped careers.

Our Vision

To be the leading female engineering association that encourages females to achieve their fullest potential no matter their ethnic origin or social background.

Our Mission

Empowering females in the study and practice of Engineering to position them to soar higher and take advantage of opportunities in the sector.

Our Objectives

  • Promote the study and practice of engineering amongst females
  • Support and encourage women engaged in the study and practice of the engineering profession
  • Ensure the provision of equal opportunities for both genders in their pursuit of engineering careers
  • Contribute to and positively influence policy and decision making at national and international level.
  • Girl/Female Talk (Yearly WinE Forum on various issues affecting Ghanaian society)
  • Career Counseling (in Secondary and Tertiary Institutions)
  • Workplace Visit
  • Mentoring young female science and engineering students
  • Awards and Scholarship for studies in science and engineering related fields (in Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Institutions)
  • Maintaining communication and Affiliation (Coming together as Women to spend time together and learn from each other)
