Women in Signal Processing Directory

The Women in Signal Processing Directory aims to increase and promote visibility and recognition of women in signal processing fields. By growing, engaging, enabling, and increasing representation of women across SPS and the engineering community as a whole, we hope to position and identify more women for leadership roles, volunteer opportunities, award nominations, Distinguished Lecturer and Distinguished Industry Speaker nominations, speaking opportunities at conferences, and more. All women – regardless of IEEE/SPS membership and affiliation – are encouraged to submit their names to the directory and share it with their colleagues to build a meaningful worldwide community.
