UAH Celebrates Women in Tech at Wednesday’s Event

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The University of Alabama at Huntsville hosted an event at the Invention to Innovation Center on Wednesday night to celebrate women in tech.

“Women in Tech” is a platform aimed at educating, encouraging and empowering women with the expertise and connections needed to succeed in STEM career fields.

Participants were able to meet several representatives of companies in the STEM field and hear from panelists from the FBI. The women at the event were excited to dive headfirst into STEM and the opportunities their field presents.

“Part of the Women in Technology charter is that we try to foster networking and learning opportunities,” said Jackie Fendrock, CEO of Accenture.

SAIC’s innovation factory manager, Kuan Collins, told News 19: “Very often women, not just in Huntsville but everywhere, we’re so focused on our families, our work and our heads down in thinking about the needs of our stakeholders. So it’s really an opportunity to connect and think about their next destination. To simply learn from each other and build friendships.

Top topics of discussion included owning your brand/voice, breaking down personal and professional barriers, and increasing the impact of women in tech.
