WIE IEEE Gujarat Section in association with Marwadi
University organized a panel discussion on "The
Role of Women in Engineering" on the occasion of
International Women in Engineering Day, 23 June
2020. The panel provided a truly an inspirational
discussion and great support that encourages girls
and women to believe in themselves and do what
they love.
More than 100 people attended the session, which
explored what a woman engineer as an individual
can do. It allowed the audience to raise questions
and encourage deep thoughts about women
engineers of the 21st century. The topics included
the importance of diversity at work, gender gap,
leadership lessons learned, and work-life balance in
the pandemic situation. Eminent speakers from all
over the globe were invited.
Thittaporn Ganokratanaa, the president of the IEEEHKN Mu Theta Chapter at Chulalongkorn University,
Thailand, served as one of the panelists. She
discussed women empowerment and gave advice to
young women trying to break into engineering and
technology fields and how to overcome problems of
gender inequality in the workplace or in internships.
She also addressed how WIE has helped her to
pursue her passion for studying engineering.

few years were rough due to a university wide ban
on fraternal organizations. In 1913, the university
lifted the ban on organizations and the Beta Chapter
was able to reestablish its presence on campus. The
chapter has been active since, making it one of the
oldest continually active organizations on Purdue's
campus.
The HKN Lounge at Purdue was established
in 1968, having recently celebrated its 50th
anniversary. Historical knowledge among current
Beta Chapter students indicates that the lounge has
operated every semester since then. Beta Chapter
students operate the HKN Lounge during both
semesters of the academic year, except for the first
week of the semester (to prepare) and the last
week of the semester (for finals). "The Lounge" as
it is affectionately referred to, is open to all Purdue
students, faculty, and staff from 7:30 a.m. until 5
p.m. five days a week. It is divided into two rooms.
The Outer Lounge is a cozy space with tables, chairs,
and couches for patrons to enjoy. The lounge is
usually full of students enjoying snacks, studying,
playing Super Smash Brothers on the Lounge's
