Professors Belding, Mirza, Conrad, and Kharitonova organized a WICS event to welcome the new and returning women graduate students to the department! This event was a great social to kick off and energize WICS and support the women in the Computer Science department. Many who attended also attended the Grace Hopper Celebration and shared their experiences with the new and returning women graduate students.
WICS is a student-run group open to students, staff, and alumni in the computer science department at UC Santa Barbara. Our mission is to support and empower women in computer science at UCSB. We organize social, mentoring and outreach events to connect with women in technology in and around Santa Barbara.
