03oct5:30 pm8:30 pmCWHF Women in STEM, an evening of inspiration


Event Details

While women have been instrumental in many technology achievements over the years, they also have been ‘hidden figures’, largely ignored by the media, by business and by educators. The CWHF vision is to inspire women in STEM and women from other walks of life to consider learning and sharing the inspiring stories of our Inductees in STEM fields with the women they work with, their daughters, their friends, and even if considering a career move themselves.
