In addition to our main project, as a part of community outreach, we reached out to graduate and post graduate students from the North West University. We organized an International Leadership and Careers Workshop, which took some late night hours to prepare. From left, Chandra, Sanjay, Effie and I.
University's Student Body advertised the Workshop with this flier.
We talked to students about our technical work, about research in corporate world, emerging technologies, and about the skill set relevant for workforce today. After that, we broke down into smaller teams to deeper discuss topics such as emerging technologies, women in business, personal brands and impact of social media. We attracted a large crowd of students who were all very enthusiastic and engaged. By the end of the event, I got a few new mentees.
