OCWiC 2019 Recap


I want to welcome you to the 2019 Ohio Celebration of Women in Computing held at the fabulous Sawmill Creek Resort in Huron, Ohio!  This year’s program is comprised of workshops, research talks, Birds of a Feather, Q&A panels and short technical talks. I encourage you to meet new people and to not be afraid to ask your questions. We are here to help you.

Throughout the next two days, you will have an opportunity to obtain feedback on your resume, to hear from undergraduate and graduate researchers, from professionals in the industry and academia workplaces, and listen to two FANTASTIC keynote presenters:

On behalf of myself and all who were involved with making this celebration happen, we hope you leave knowing there are many different roles in computing, that it’s ok to change your focus as your interests evolve and that there is a community out there that can encourage you along the way!

We are glad you came!
