About

Graduate Women in Chemical Engineering (GWiChE) was founded in Fall 2018 with the goal of supporting graduate women in the ChemE department at MIT. We strive to create a welcoming and safe space for women in the department by hosting coffee hours, lunches, networking events, and educational workshops.
