Here are what past participants have to say about the WiE conference:

“It was very inspiring to see career panel women share their life experiences.
Listening to so many women in such high positions really inspired me to
become like them in the future.” 

“Great opportunity to ask questions to professionals and gain insights on the
types of skills currently in demand.  Able to think and plan career by listening
to the backgrounds of the professionals in my field of interest.” 

“The conference is directly related as I am a Computer Science major and I
can learn about the latest technologies in the industry.”
