Launched 8 years ago, the IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference (IEEE WIE ILC) provides professional women in technology, whether in industry, academia, or government, the opportunity to create communities that fuel innovation, facilitate knowledge sharing and provide support through highly interactive sessions designed to foster discussion and collaboration. IEEE WIE ILC focuses on providing leading-edge professional development for mid to senior-level women.
The safety and well-being of our participants is our priority. With the continued resurgence of COVID-19 along with the continued CDC guidelines prohibiting large or even moderately-sized public gatherings, it makes it an impossibility to hold the in-person event as originally planned. The organizing committee is moving 2021 WIE ILC to a fully virtual conference. We were looking forward to seeing everyone in San Diego 2021 but we are excited for the opportunity to innovate an engaging virtual conference. The organizing committee is now working to create a virtual conference that will be rewarding for both presenters and attendees. We are hopeful we will see you in San Diego in 2022.
