IEEE WIE ILC 2020 Virtual Series & Library

Welcome to the IEEE WIE ILC 2020 Virtual Series!

The IEEE WIE ILC Virtual Series will take place throughout June 2020, offering 1-hour sessions, live panel discussions, virtual networking opportunities, and an on-demand library for you to browse when it’s convenient for you, which can be found below.

The current circumstances have led to more challenges, both professionally and personally, for the women in tech community, and strong leadership is needed now more than ever. As a result, we’ve updated the theme of the Virtual Series to “Leading through Change”. Our speakers have adapted their content to make sure it’s relevant and worth you taking the time out of your already hectic schedules.

Plus, the IEEE WIE ILC Virtual Series is free to attend! Registration is now open and we encourage you to sign up early and share with anyone you think can benefit from attending.
