Social Innovations for Humanitarian Impact & Sustainable Development Panel by IEEE WIE Kenya and Turkey When: Aug 31, 2021 04:00 PM- 5:30 PM GMT+3 This webinar collaborates with IEEE – WIE (Women in Engineering) Turkey and Kenya to demystify the engineers’ and technologists’ mindsets of thinking of a problem and giving solutions that communities later turn down. This webinar looks into extending the talks to building technological or non-technological solutions, therefore having the speakers be the primary investigators in the project and having a team of mentors and mentees who will actualize a frugal and sustainable solution contextualizing the needs of the specified communities.
