December 2-3 2021 @ Genoa, Italy & Online
The IEEE WIE ILS is an internationally acclaimed program of IEEE Women in Engineering, which is one of the world’s largest technical communities working towards shaping the scenario of underrepresentation of Women in Engineering and Technology.
IEEE WIE ILS started in 2015 was organized in Chennai with the theme “Beyond Yourself – Leveraging your strengths and breaking barriers”. The summit drew more than 200 participants which paved the way for more such summits all over the globe. Now every year ten such summits are organized across the globe.
In 2020 we were selected to host an ILS event for the first time in Italy. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 ILS was only virtual (see the “past editions” tab).
This year we are going to have a hybrid event with participation both online and in-person! We have planned sessions on empowering, entrepreneurship, mentoring, and also parenting! The event is open to anyone, especially to women and minorities in the STEM area.
Join us (either in person or online) for two days of panel discussions, keynote presentations, round table discussions, and networking!
