WoWE's goal is to advocate for women in technical jobs while offering networking, professional development working groups and scholarships for women interested in wind energy coursework.

WoWE is a branch of a nonprofit agency called Windustry. Through member-supported outreach, education and advocacy, Windustry works to promote progressive renewable energy solutions.

On the national level, WoWE is a group of individuals who support and encourage the participation and advancement of professional women in the wind energy industry.
