You go, girl

Engineering’s 100 Women Strong held its first leadership and development conference in March, offering female engineering students opportunities for networking, mentoring and professional growth. Members of 100 Women Strong came to campus to lead various breakout sessions, with Dorothy S. Davidson, chairman of the board and CEO of Davidson Technologies, giving a keynote address.

With a mission to recruit, retain and reward women in engineering, members of 100 Women Strong commit to supporting the college through annual gifts, as well as providing guidance and advice for future female engineers. Despite its name, the program now consists of more than 100 alumnae and friends, as well as two corporate sponsors – Alabama Power Company and Southwire.
