First anniversary of IEEE Ukraine Section Women in Engineering Affinity Group

Well, as they say, better late than never. Two months ago IEEE Ukraine Section Women in Engineering Affinity Group celebrated its first anniversary. The meeting agenda included introduction of IEEE Women in Engineering community, self-introduction of the members and discussion in the format of round-table talk.This was the first time when we gathered all together in one place, got to meet each other, discuss the practical challenges that we encounter and ways to overcome them, and plan our activities aimed at promoting WIE and IEEE at the institutes that we work at for the next year of the group’s existence. The most important issue that speaks for itself is that while we planned for this meeting to be up to 3 hours long, we have stayed there for almost 8 hours, talking, ‘falling into friendship’ and laughing! After several hours of an ‘official’ part, we have also played some board games, ate birthday cake and had a photo session. Thank you for the wonderful day, ladies, and for being who you are — girls-scientists that so do rock!
