Virtual Member Highlight
The OWIT Virtual Chapter presents its latest OWIT member highlight and discussion event. This month, our discussion will feature two OWIT members, who will introduce themselves and provide a brief presentation. After our featured members speak, we will ask participants to introduce themselves, and there will be time for a Q&A and general discussion. We hope that this event allows participants to network and make connections among OWIT virtual and chapter members! This event is free to current OWIT members (both virtual and chapter members). The event will last one hour.
Our featured speakers will be Dr. Joynicole Martinez and Wendy Epley.
