KWiSE/KOFWST Women's Forum


August 8, Friday 1:30 - 3:30 PM / SandPebble A

The Korean-American Women in Science and Engineering (KWiSE) forum entitled "Current Women's Issues around the World" will explore issues regarding womens welfare, education, career opportunities, and overall living qualities. Open discussions on these issues will help women scientists and engineers prepare their career and set their life goals to become true leaders. This would also help them reach out to other women around the world to improve their quality of life. This forum is open to all UKC participants. All women are strongly encouraged to attend.
