The WISE Sudbury chapter inauguration occured on December 5th 1998. The following January, WISE Sudbury held its first job shadow and its inaugural meeting.  Dr. Monique Frize, NSERC/Nortel Joint Chair for Women in Science and Engineering in Ontario was the first guest speaker.  On February 11, 1999, the group developed the WISE Sudbury objectives and defined the group’s mandate.   The WISE logo was developed in the summer of that same year, and the first brochure came out in the fall.
