WOMEN DESIGNING THE FUTURE…
|A Celebration of NJIT Women – Past, Present and Future.|
See innovative work uniting Tech+Art+Design!
Meet women tech-makers who “do what they like & like what they do!”
NJIT’s Murray Center for Women in Technology is 20 years old this year-and we invite you to join the celebration! On March 27, we are showcasing the achievements of NJIT women at our “Women Designing the Future” conference. This day-long event offers something for everybody-students and entrepreneurs, faculty and alumnae, women and men. Conference participants will have the opportunity to hear the exciting stories of women innovators who work at the intersection of technology, art and design….
….Women like conference luncheon speaker Danielle Feinberg, Director of Photography for Lighting at Pixar Animation Studios. Feinberg, who has a degree in computer science, is responsible for lighting many of Pixar’s most well-known films, including Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and Brave. Feinberg is one of the conference’s many featured tech-makers whose careers allow them to “do what they like and like what they do.”
In addition to hearing the stories of women innovators, conference participants will have the opportunity to learn (hands-on) how to tell their own career stories via high-tech e-branding strategies-including a digital “elevator speech.”
The conference gets off to a fast start with a keynote address by Leecia Eve Esq., Vice President for State Government Affairs for the Tri-State Region at Verizon Communications, who will map out exciting new opportunities for innovation. In addition to Feinberg, Eve, and the Career E-Branding workshop, the conference will include two interactive breakout sessions: “Women Innovators the Intersection of Technology, Architecture, Art, and Design” and “Women as Creators of Breakthrough Solutions to Big X Problems.”
Throughout the day, innovative work by women in tech+art+design will be displayed on multiple screens in the conference space on the second floor of NJIT’s Campus Center.
