IEEE-WIE Women Leadership Summit
November 2-4, 2016 Loews Atlanta
Join Us in Atlanta this November for a one of a Kind Event!
It is my pleasure to announce that early registration is now open for our upcoming Global Women in STEM leadership summit in Atlanta, Ga November 2-4, 2016. The summit is hosted by the IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE), in partnership with the UGA College of Engineering and a number of corporate, economic development, nonprofit, and higher education partners. This is the first of its kind 2-day summit ever held in the region that is dedicated to giving women in STEM access to powerful tools, strategies and networks to realize their full potential. Four hundred women are expected to participate.
The summit organizing team consisting of a diverse group of passionate academics, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, and students has designed a very special inter-generational multidimensional leadership development program with plenary and break out speeches, panels, fireside chats and round table discussions, as well as mentoring and networking sessions. We have called on influential movers and shakers and thought leaders from academia, industry, nonprofit, and entrepreneurship spheres, who are predominantly women, to share their rich and enriching stories and experiences and how they shattered the glass ceiling everywhere and in so many ways. Our speakers and facilitators have written books, led major fortune companies, won big awards, founded companies and nonprofit organizations, worked across the globe, and appeared and worked on major TV networks.
Register now and let us help you design your future and help us level the playing field for women in STEM!
