RAMP and College of Engineering Women's Speaker Series

The College of Engineering and the RAMP to Success program invites you to to join our Women's Speaker Series sessions:


"A Journey of Many Passions" with Abigail Joseph, Computer Scientist, Educator and Changemaker

This talk will focus on the many pathways Dr. Joseph has taken from childhood to the current day as a computer scientist, educator, and changemaker. She will talk about her journey as a student, how she became interested in computer science, completed a Ph.D. in computer science, and her various journeys as an educator in K-12 schools, non-profits, and colleges.  She will also talk about her current crusade as CSTA (Computer Science Teachers Association) Equity Fellow championing for equity and access to CS education.

Sponsored by the Research, Academics and Mentoring Pathways (RAMP) to Success Program and the Francis College of Engineering.
