 About the Organizers


Oracle Women's Leadership’s (OWL) mission is to develop, engage, empower current and future generations of Oracle women leaders to foster an inclusive and innovative workforce.
IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is the largest international professional organization dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists and inspiring girls around the world to follow their academic interests to a career in engineering.

The IEEE Computer Society is the world's leading membership organization dedicated to computer science and technology. Serving more than 60,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society is the trusted information, networking, and career-development source for a global community of technology leaders that includes researchers, educators, software engineers, IT professionals, employers, and students.
The IEEE Young Professionals is a great opportunity for you to get involved and meet like-minded people in Silicon Valley while building your carrier at the same time. We are a great way to expand your professional network, or if you are new to the area, you can meet new people. Not all of our events are technical in nature, we also run quite a few social events which make for a good way to relax after a hard day's work and also meet your fellow engineers. 


Seating is limited! Register early for this day of technical and professional development. You will have the opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in computing technology, meet other women in computing, have an opportunity to hear from panelists on career options and network with others during the evening reception.
