Interested in hosting a Women In Research event in your region? WIRe events would not be possible without the dedicated commitment from event leads around the world.

As a WIRe event lead you’ll be the face of Women in Research in your local market, and spearhead our relationships with local members and sponsors. Your commitment to hosting an event is invaluable to our volunteer driven organization! In turn, you benefit from increased industry exposure for yourself and your company.

Event leads participate in sponsorship outreach, plan event details, assist in event promotions and serve as the face of Women In Research in your local market. WIRe will help provide you with guidelines and tools as well as administrative and marketing support to ensure your event is a success.

In order to maintain consistency and interest in Women in Research in each market, we ask that event leads host two events per year, one in Q1/Q2 and one in Q3/Q4. The educational content of the event will be structured around a year-long “theme” provided by WIRe. If you would like to host a pop-up event to test market feasibility or if you have other creative ideas for events, please let us know!

WIRe promotes all events through our networks, but we ask that you help spread the word through social channels (personal + WIRe) and your own industry networks. Event leads also work closely with your event sponsors to co-promote events.
