Women in Computing & Software: 4th annual ONCWIC conference!

Left to right: Ashton, Natalie, Yassi,and I before our welcome dinner Earlier this month, my friends and I packed our bags and headed up to Waterloo, Ontario for the 4th annual Ontario Celebration of Women in Computing conference. This wasn’t my first time- we went as a group last year, and loved it so much we came back! It’s an inexpensive conference, and has multiple meals, lectures, and a job fair, so we donned our heels and headed out.I could easily type glowing reviews of so many of the keynote speakers, and the wit and charisma they brought to their presentations. However, one of my favourites was Maria Klawe, President of Harvey Mudd College. A lot of her discussion simply focused on the mindset many females have in academia, and then continue to have while they work in industry.While they may not reign true for everyone out there, the concepts presented seem to loudly resonate with the 220 women in the room.Attendees in one of the conference discussionsIt starts at an early age
