Women in Engineering and IT provides a diverse, safe and inclusive community so that study and careers in Engineering and IT are not limited by gender. See what our staff and students say about being part of it!
My name is Arti Agrawal and I'm the
Director for women in engineering and IT at
the University of Technology Sydney I'm
also an associate professor in the
school of data and electrical
Engineering. Women in engineering and IT is
the longest-running unit of its kind in
Australia and our vision is to create
and lead social change so that education
and career journeys in engineering and
IT are not limited by gender and here
I'd like to share with you some of the
answers we got from people from our
community about what it means to them.
The Women in Engineering and IT community provides an opportunity to flourish.
A united community filled with love
to help others. Women in engineering and
IT in one word would be empowering. It’s
an ambitious and enthusiastic community
which focuses on wellbeing as well as the
empowerment of women. It’s so passionate,
everyone working here is so passionate
about empowering women and taking them
to the next level. I’ve been attending let's talk
Sessions, the weekly coffee hours, the occasional
lunch and cultural
celebration events, lots of skill
development workshops. What I've done in the
program that I’m currently actively
involved in women in engineering and IT at
UTS is called the Ambassador Program
I have had numerous opportunities to
attend seminars presentations workshops
I could also participate in volunteering
Activities. The coffees hours, festival
celebrations from different cultures,
I made new connections and lifelong
Friends. I’ve improved my academic and social
skills due to the meetings and
workshops I've been attending for the
past year. When I first came to Australia I
didn't know anyone and women in
engineering and IT made me feel included
I've got so many opportunities to
explore myself. It helps me to develop a
strong and professional network and
connectivity with other people. Being a
part of this community I’ve learned not to
limit myself. Many people limit
themselves to what they think they can do
But we can go as far as our mind can go
when we are determined. Namaste.
I am able to connect women in tech
like engineer data scientists that share
the same value and put diversity at
their job right. It’s helped me to have a
Voice, to say what I need to say and do
what needs to be done to help others
Do that. Being part of women in engineering and
IT has made me much more
Confident, made me meet like-minded
people and helped me develop skills
through various workshops that
keeps on happening around the year.
