Chapter Leader Introduces Women's IEEE Engineering Group

Chapter board member and women's outreach leader Fiorella Lamberti spoke at the first meeting of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Italy Section's Women in Engineering Affinity Group (WIE AG) in October. The WIE AG was created to promote and sustain the presence of female engineers in Italy's universities, industries and institutions. Fiorella, who is also the group's communications coordinator, provided an overview of the chapter's Women in AFCEA initiatives. She also discussed the WIE AG's objectives and motivations, showing figures that demonstrate the large amount of work to be done to increase women's presence in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The event also provided an opportunity for networking with other similar associations active in promoting women in STEM, including AICA-Women in ICT and WeWomEngineers.
