IEEE WIE Ottawa at IEEE SPAC 2020

IEEE WIE Ottawa was delighted to engage with a large number of 300
young students and professionals from different engineering disciplines
who all gathered in the IEEE SPAC 2020. It was a great opportunity to
discuss the WIE vision of supporting women in
their role and helping them succeed in their journey.  We
had a number of people, both men and women, encouraging the WIE efforts
and sharing our core values. Through out the event, the WIE Ottawa team
representatives, Anastassia Gharib 
(Chair), Dana Haj Hussein  (Secretary),
Fadwa Darwaish (Treasurer), and Naomi Solomon (Event Coordinator), were
introducing IEEE WIE to people who showed a great interest to support us
on social media as well as getting the IEEE
WIE membership. IEEE WIE Ottawa booth was well placed and had more than
80 visitors. The WIE team continued to outreach to people during the
dinner time in which the team had interesting connections from the
industry and the educational sectors. Anastassia
presented IEEE WIE through a general talk which took place during the
event. The networking session at the end of the event was spectacularly
beneficial as we were able to establish interesting connections.
We believe this event was very beneficial not only
because it was a golden opportunity to inform a large number of people
about WIE but also because we were able to establish connections with
people in the field that will help supporting
our future events. #IEEEWIEOttawa #IEEEWIE #WIE #IEEE #SPAC
