Hi Professor Fiez,
We would love to have you and any interested Oregon State faculty and students attend our conference this year!
The Northwest Regional Women in Computing (NWrWIC) Celebration is focused on empowering and encouraging women to enter the STEM fields, particularly computer science. Our goal is to improve women's experience in computing education and to encourage women to enter technical careers.
The third annual NWrWIC Conference will be held Saturday, April 12 in Portland, Oregon. This year's conference has an exciting agenda that will focus on women pioneering innovation. The agenda includes:
Morning Keynote: Kim Swift, Creative Director, Airtight Games
Kim Swift is a video game designer best known for her work on the popular games Portal and Left 4 Dead. In 2012, she was selected by Forbes to appear in 30 Under 30: The Brightest Young Stars in Video Games.
Tech Talk: Human-Computer Interaction with Jen Davidson, PhD candidate in computer science at Oregon State University
Speed Networking sessions
Career fair, resume reviews, and mock interviews
This conference is open to everyone, including students, thought leaders, industry leaders, higher education professionals, parents, teachers, and community leaders. Please feel free to forward this information to colleagues and students who might like to attend.
