GCW Leadership

Computer Science and Engineering senior Richa Kakar accepted two awards on behalf of the student organization Girls Who Code (GWC) at the engineering banquet held by E-Council in the Marshall Center.

“The board is grateful that our efforts were recognized by our members!” said Richa, the GWC president.

GWC's membership grew this year, helping women in STEM develop professionally through events with three CPP companies - Amazon, CAE, and JP Morgan and Chase. 

“These events give our members a chance to interact with recruiters directly, talk to managing directors, get virtual office tours, and more. We have also held multiple social events along with our Weekly workshops in C++,” Richa explained.

The student organization received the “Award for Exceptional Workshops” and the “Award for Advancement in Up-and-Coming Organizations.”
