Eighteen Franklin University students and faculty attended the 5th biennial Ohio Celebration of Women in Computing (OCWiC) conference held at Mohican State Park on February 22-23, 2013. With over 175 in attendance, Franklin had a strong representation. The conference enabled women to gather and discuss some interesting things encountered during their careers in industry and academia.
The day began with an academic and research career panel, faculty workshop and guest speakers. After dinner, several mini-discussions on topics from fast algorithms to a framework for mining social media data to a diabetes support system occurred. Then, following a party that evening, came morning discussions on undergraduate and graduate poster submissions, keynote speakers, and a job fair. In attendance were many fantastic students who are just at the beginning of their journey in the world of computing. Feedback received from Franklin students who participated in the conference was that they left the conference inspired to reach a little higher and go a little further than they ever imagined they could. Those women in attendance made new connections, learned something new, furthered their career goals, and had fun!
OCWiC is an opportunity for young women to explore careers in IT, to network with other young women and to meet possible mentors. OCWiC hopes to encourage women to complete their studies in computing by exploring careers and meeting women leaders from business, industry and academia. Attendees will be women majoring in computing fields from universities and colleges all over Ohio as well as women teaching and working in computing careers.
