Codess comes to Prague - June 20th

Prague

To continue the success of our initial Codess event in Tallinn, come join us for our first ever CODESS in Prague- an engineering forum for women in Czech Republic, sponsored by Skype.

Gender diversity in the field of engineering continues to draw international attention. For a long time, engineering has been perceived as a male area and women active in these areas are often treated as exceptions. We feel women need a voice too.

What? Through meeting with other women in engineering you will get a chance to network and exchange experiences of being a woman in the world where most of the workers are men. We will also have 2 talks from our speakers and later will have a chance to socialise over drinks and nibbles.

Why? CODESS supports the increase of diversity in the engineering field. We feel it is important to have a forum for women to share their personal experiences in climbing the engineering career ladder, giving advice on what knowledge they have gained with the opportunity to share and learn from one another. You will walk away from CODESS with useful suggestions to improve yourself and fast track your career within engineering.
