WAFER: WomXn at the Forefront of ECE Research

WomXn at the Forefront of ECE Research (WAFER)

Tuesday, November 7, 2023

The UW Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering is excited to introduce the second WomXn at the Forefront of ECE Research (WAFER) event at UW! This event aims to cultivate an inclusive environment for participants and speakers alike to share and learn more about research in ECE, hear others’ experiences in the field (at different stages of their careers), and to ultimately leave the event feeling inspired to potentially pursue a career in ECE or other tech-related fields.


The all-day event is free and will take place online (open to everyone) and in-person (UW community only). Join us online via Zoom from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (PST) to hear keynote speakers, Dr. Maya Gupta (CEO & Founder at Didero) and Dona Sarkar (Director of Technology at Microsoft Accessibility). Following the keynote presentations there will be an Industry Panel and Faculty Panel (see below for details). The event will then shift to in-person activities (UW community members only) from 1– 5:30 p.m. (PST) and will include Student Tech-Talks, a Student Panel, Workshops and a Research Poster Social. Registration is required to secure your spot. Click below to learn more!
