Batoul Ahmad Taki has been selected to attend the Computing Research Association Committee on Widening Participation workshop to be held on April 16-18 in New Orleans. Batoul will participate in the Grad Cohort for Women workshop. CRA will fully support travel and related expenses.
At the Grad Cohort for Women, attendees will spend two days interacting with about 20 senior female computing-related researchers and professionals, who will share pertinent information on graduate school survival skills, as well as more personal information and insights about their experiences. The workshop will include a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. By attending Grad Cohort attendees will be able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks that will form the basis for ongoing activities during their graduate career and beyond.
