Ending the WICS 2020 Chapter

The time has come for us (2020 Committee) to pass on the torch and bid farewell to the society. It has been quite an eventful year with a lot of obstacles along the way that forced us to become agile and pave a new path going forward, but we are definitely proud of what we managed to achieve while serving our term.

Over the course of the year we’ve managed to:

  • Host our first ever virtual intervarsity hackathon exclusively for women
  • Host informative webinars for our members covering the following topics: Cloud computing, Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence Talk as well the Women’s Day Girl Talk Panel
  • Introduce coding to members who were new to the tech space through the ‘Intro to Code’ Workshop series
  • Revamp our website which hadn’t been updated since 2016
  • Start a new blog series – where we allowed members to share their inspirational journey’s in the tech space
