Two C-BRIC Students Selected for CRA-W Grad Cohort for Women

Lauren Braun, from Portland State University, and Sarada Krithivasan, from Purdue, have been chosen at attend the CRA-W Grad Cohort for Women. The CRA-W Grad Cohort for Women program, initiated in 2004, is a program designed  to increase the ranks of senior women in computing-related studies and research by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women through their graduate studies. The program, generously funded by sponsors from industry, ACM, CRA, academia, the National Science Foundation, and the computing community, is an annual event that will take place in 2019 in April in Chicago.

At the event, attendees will meet for two days with 20 to 25 senior computing-related researchers and professionals, who will share pertinent information on graduate school survival skills, as well as more personal information and insights about their experiences. The rewards of a research career will be emphasized. The workshop will include a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. Through this workshop, students will be able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks that will form the basis for ongoing activities during their graduate careers.

Congratulations Lauran and Sarada!
