Worldwide Women in Electronic Design (WWED) highlights the achievements women have contributed to in the electronics industry. Each year the committee works closely with the DAC Executive Committee to seek out and sponsor an exceptional speaker to present at DAC. They also seek nominations and select the recipient of the annual Marie R. Pistilli Award.

This annual award, named for the late Marie R. Pistilli, the former co-organizer of DAC, recognizes individuals who have visibly helped to advance the profile of women in the electronics industry.
