Africon 2015 Success story!
WiP is a proud supporter of WiE Panel session at Africon 2015.
During the presentation, Noel Schulz shared about IEEE PES, IEEE Smart Village, IEEE Women in Engineering and Women in Power. After the workshop, there was a lot of energy and enthusiasm about helping promote women in engineering and creating networks to help with the recruitment and retention of women in STEM fields. Additionally, she had several inquiries from folks within Ethiopia as well as other countries about getting more involved in the Smart Village efforts. The support of PES has made this possible and created additional momentum in Ethiopia around our initiatives and women in engineering and power.
