Please join us the morning of December 19th to meet speaker Poornima Vijayashanker from Femgineer. RESERVE YOUR PLACE-- SEATING IS LIMITED! The event is free of charge, and open to WITI members and non-members.

Poornima will be speaking about the criticality of women not only securing a role in technology but staying there for the long term. As an established leader in the field of technical mentorship and education, she has valuable insights on the "Miss" conceptions that have impacted women and how to overcome them.
