Greetings from Women in Engineering Affinity group of IEEE Student Branch, Raghu Institute of Technology, Visakhapatnam (Vizag Bay Section). We are delighted to share with you, how we celebrated International Women in Engineering day on June 23, 2021 in our Student Branch.
As a part of the event we organized a webinar on Women Empowerment and invited Ms Rahimunnisa Begum who is known for her excellent oratory skills in this region. She has spoken on women empowerment, women empowerment schemes and collaboration on account of Women in Engineering day. On this day we took the pledge “a women with a vision empowers the empire of women, to do more, to see more, and be more” In fact we understood the Technical and Cultural Events in college equals the importance of education and should experience this at least once during the course of their undergraduate studies. It instills the importance of originality and individuality that are the most vital aspects.
