Women are always encouraged to network, but often are not given the full instructions on what the outcome of the network could or should be. Seldom are they mentored to network in ways that they are viewed as contributors who bring impact and value to the discipline. The purpose of this talk is to provide some guidelines from lessons learned about networking not only through the speaker’s experience as a faculty member moving through the ranks, but as a university administrator, and a leader in a national organization.

Girls Who Don’t Code (YET) is a half-day workshop aimed at inspiring high-school girls who are currently not interested in STEM fields to consider a career in tech.

This year we are inviting 30 girls to participate in an interactive workshop that will include hands-on classroom sessions – building smart applications and understanding the concept of ML, few cool presentations, and an inspiring guest speaker.

The event is on Friday, August 14 from 9am to 12:00pm and the deadline to register is Friday, July 31st at 5pm.

High-school aged girls from 15 to 18 who are deciding their college options

We want to inspire them by tackling common misconceptions:

  1. Sitting in front of the computer all day is boring
  2. Tech career is not cool (compared to fashion designer for example)
  3. Computer science is hard and it requires complicated math
