On Friday, December 8, Dallas SWE members and other local women engineering professionals spent several hours at the BEST Robotics competition at the University of Texas at Dallas campus for a Women in Technology panel talk and speed mentoring event. About 150 high school girls from across the state heard from the five panelists and had three one-on-one speed mentoring sessions, asking great questions about what it’s like to be an engineer, how the professionals got to their current positions, and what they love about engineering and technology. The student evaluations were overwhelmingly positive and the mentors really enjoyed sharing their stories! Thanks to UTD, BEST Robotics, and Dallas SWE member Lynn Mortensen for coordinating this event and including Dallas SWE volunteers!
