Anna Truelove entered first year at UNC feeling lost and confused. Now as a junior, she’s helping to guide and support women in technology.
Truelove is a member of the planning committee that's organizing Women in Tech Week 2019, a program through the Department of Computer Science at UNC. The committee holds a series of events pertaining to diversity in computer science and technology.
According to the Department of Computer Science’s online statement, UNC CS Women in Tech Week aims to start a conversation about ways to support women in tech and make the tech environment at UNC a more open and accepting community.
Women in Tech Week 2019 will last March 25-28. Go here for a list of events.
The events include a talk from Capital One Bank on March 28 that will discuss how to negotiate internship and job offers in tech, and a Tech Lunch Bunch on March 27 that will give the opportunity to network with industry experts from Google, NCINO, United Healthcare and Capital One.
“I think it’s important for everyone to see that just because women are not the majority in tech does not mean that they don’t belong in tech,” said Hope Woodhouse, event coordinator for the Department of Computer Science.
