WeBelong! Fall 2019

Spring 2020 WeBelong!

We Belong! CS@WashU is a workshop about computing for women by women to be held on Sunday January 26th 2020 in Lopata Gallery. Our goal is to bring together women in computing from WashU and the St. Louis area to promote computing to female first-year students who started in Fall 19 or Spring 20. Returning participants are very welcome – the event will have a different panel and different hand-son sessions (see below).   

If you’re wondering what it’s like to study CS or pursue a career in computing, or if you want to meet other women from the WashU computing community, this event is for YOU! Sign up here (coming soon).

The workshop is hosted by the CSE department, WiCS, and Girls Who Code.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions: m dot neumann at wustl dot edu, julia dot dai at wustl dot edu, or myelenick at wustl dot edu.
