One of my heart projects is the Women in leadership positions at the Department of Computer and Information Science (supported by NTNU likestilling project). The program has just started and is leaded by Lars Asle Einarsen, specialist in Work and Organizational psychology Partner LEAD as.
Through this project I learn to know better my female colleagues. Here I want to shed light to a new relationship that deserves attention. PhD student Faegheh Hasibi, whom I did not know personally from before contributes specially with her knowledge and interest about the International network of women in computing.
Thanks Faegheh, looking forward to interact more with you and learn more from you.
