Founders

 

Fiona Liang

BS. Industrial Engineering '19

MS Industrial Engineering '20

Fiona is a GWC 2014 Summer Immersion Program Alumni. Initially she wanted to become a lawyer but after participating in the program, she fell in love with engineering. She hopes that bringing this opportunity to young girls and exposing them to coding will spark their interest in STEM just like it did with her.

Caitlin Hall

BS. Industrial Engineering '19

MS Industrial Engineering '20

Caitlin  believes that all young women who are passionate about STEM should have a group of supportive women and a healthy environment to explore their interests. After her first engineering class at BU, she realized it was essential to provide this support for girls at a younger age. She hopes that GWC Club can give that to girls across the region. 

Kasey Hill

BS. Industrial Engineering '18

Masters in Business Administration '19

Kasey is passionate about inspiring those around her to achieve greatness through continuous learning and growth.  She was inspired by a group of women in her Engineering Sorority to dream big.  Now, she hopes to continue that legacy by encouraging the future of young women to pursue STEM opportunities and discover their full potential.
