Women in Technology and Science Ireland (WITS)
Women in Technology and Science Ireland (WITS) advocates for gender equality in science and technology by holding events and influencing policy. It was founded in 1990 by Mary Mulvihill, and they hold a lecture in her name every year. They have been responsible for arranging plaques of female scientists, run a STEMMinist book club, and have published a book called Lab Coats and Lace containing biographies of Irish women scientists. Recently, they have launched a podcast for listeners to find out more about their members.
