THIS YEAR'S BWI

This year’s Brunch With Industry has turned virtual!! Join us for our new online event: Breakfast in Bed!

Each speaker will post on the blog and students will be able to ask questions in the comment section of the blog. This event aims to highlight women in STEM and will focus on how Covid-19 has affected the workplace, allowing students to get a real idea of how industry professions deal with challenge and change.
