Members of the Future Tech Women Group and students at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester, Pauline Wilk, Valerie Therrien, and Meagan Wolf, joined their Dyn mentors, Bethany Ross, Kelly O’Hara, and Jackie Wegman, and traveled to Harvard in February for the WeCode (Women Engineers Code) Conference! What a great bonding trip! FTW was proud to represent New Hampshire women in technology, as they were the only group from New Hampshire to attend.
The girls got to hear from many prominent women in the Computer Science world, like Kimber Lockhart and Rebecca Parsons, speak their hearts out, telling their stories of success, and encouraging females in the computer science and engineering fields to be confident and believe in themselves. Being one of these girls, I certainly left inspired! Especially from my talk at lunch with a few young female Facebook employees. We will definitely be going back for more fun next year!
