Navigating A Rising Tide – Leadership and Technical Advancement

#IEEE #Rama #de #Estudiantes #UNED #Women #in #Engineering

Dear all,

Next Wednesday 27 May 2020 at 19:00, Kathleen Kramer will be presenting the session Navigating A Rising Tide – Leadership and Technical Advancement.

“A rising tide lifting all boats” is the theme of a lecture on the relationship between leadership and technical career development. Dr. Kathleen Kramer, IEEE Secretary and Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Aerospace & Electronics Systems Society, shares her story that connects prioritizing the technical aspects of work and interests, as, yes, a part of career development, but, importantly, also, enabling and inspiring greater advancement and advocacy goals of Women in Engineering.

This event is organized from the UNED, led by its Vicerrectorado de Estudiantes y Emprendimiento, in combination with the Student Branch of the IEEE of the UNED, will develop a new activity with the participation of students who belong to the Branch, in collaboration with other Vicerrectorados de la UNED (Investigación e Internacionalización, Centros Asociados), the Associate Center of Madrid at its headquarters in Las Tablas, the Schools of Industrial Engineering, Computer Science and the Faculty of Sciences (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Environment), the Teaching Innovation Project (PID) for Teaching Innovation Groups (GID) of the UNED, GID2016-17 "Laboratorios de STEM y robótica educativa para la mejora de la experiencia del estudiante – STEM‐SEC", the Spanish Chapter of the IEEE Education Society and Plaza Robotica.

We are waiting for you.

Receive a cordial greeting,

The IEEE Student Branch at UNED.
