WeBelong! Fall 2019

WeBelong! Workshop Idea

We Belong! CS@WashU is a workshop about computing for women by women. Our third WeBelong workshop will be held on Saturday September 11th 2021 in Urbauer 304 and the Urbauer Computer Labs (214, 215, 216).

Our goal is to bring together women in computing from WashU and the St. Louis area to promote computing to female first-year students. 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! RSVP by Wed 09/08 here.

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, kathleen dot lund at wustl dot edu, or nataliacastillo at wustl dot edu.
