The event is sponsored by IEEE Sweden Section, as well as IEEE Photonics Society Sweden Chapter through IEEE Chapter Grants. The CSW 2021 venue is at the Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm on 9-13 May-2021 (the symposium is on Monday 10-May).
To promote personal and professional growth for women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), a Women-in-STEM symposium with two sessions will be arranged as part of CSW-2021 in the afternoon and evening of Monday, 10-May 2021. Prominent female speakers will present their scientific results in the afternoon session with theme on Women-in-Electronics/Photonics, and in the evening panel discussion several top female leaders will share their insight and opinion regarding gender and diversity related challenges and solutions regarding the 4th technology wave. This symposium aims to inspire young professionals and PhD students not only to embrace the new technology leap but also to guide their mindset and personal development for a good work/life balance for a career in the STEM fields.
