The IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) is proud to officially sustain the Women in Engineering (WIE) Pledge initiative. The CAS Society will maintain the promotion of female scientists and engineers by encouraging their involvement in CASS conferences and events, publications, technical and membership activities, and committees. 

The WIE Pledge initiative was launched in April 2021 and aims to work towards gender-diversified panels at all IEEE meetings, conferences, and events. For more information, please visit the IEEE WIE Pledge website

"In a scientific society like IEEE CASS, whose mission is the advancement of knowledge for the benefit of humanity, there can be no discrimination of any kind, on the contrary, all members must have the same rights to participate, contribute, serve, and be recognized by the community" said Manuel Delgado-Restituto, the 2022-2023 IEEE CASS President, who continued "IEEE CASS is proud to accept and actively contribute to the WIE's pledge, with the implementation of strategies towards a diversified gender composition in all the forums (not only technical but also management) established in our Society".

Many thanks to Yoko Uwate (WiCAS chair) and Giulia Di Capua (CASS WiE Representative), who helped to take the WIE Pledge for CASS.
