Career Panel: A day in the life of a female computer science professional

In Partnership with Madison Women in Tech and WACM (UW Madison’s Chapter of ACM’s Women in Computing)

This panel was focused on helping undergraduate female computer science majors imagine a career in the Information Technology profession.

The panel shared their stories such as: Why did they enter the IT field? What do they like about it? What do they dislike? How did they get to where they are now? Audience participants will have a chance to ask questions like ‘How did your education prepare you for your career?’ and ‘What do you wish you had known when you were still in school?’ and ‘Did you have any mentors or others along the way that helped you at critical moments?’ and ‘How do you balance family life with career?’

Thank you to all of our panelists Emily Kuhn, Paula Waite, Brenda Moten, Susan Welsch and Debra Hafenstein
