AWE Events & Opportunities

SambaNova Breaktime 
     Friday, April 17 @ 12:00-1:00pm

Curious about startups? You got questions, we got answers!
We invite you to join a few of our women engineers who will share their experience of what startups are all about. SambaNova specifically builds AI solutions.

Panel will be moderated by the recruiter and will include:
Mary Jo Doherty, the VP of Engineering. Her first job was decidedly not tech related - picking blueberries at 10 cents a pint. An avid cyclist, Mary Jo logs about 3000 miles annually.
Katia Patkin, a Senior Software Engineer on the ML team. When her schedule allows, she enjoys horseriding and snowboarding.
Aarti Lalwani, a Software Engineer on the Runtime team. She loves a good hot sauce and reading sci-fi in her spare time.
Engineering Triva Night
Think you have what it takes to be a trivia champion? Test out your Berkeley Engineering knowledge or just flex that random fact you know about that one EECS Professor! This event is in collaboration with HKN and IEEE!
Zoom link: TBA
Bloomberg Breaktime
Learn about engineering at Bloomberg through a virtual conversation with Bloomberg employees! 

Zoom link: TBA
Movie Night
Join us for a cozy night (or afternoon, day, etc. depending on your timezone) of Disney+! Bring your own popcorn and join our Zoom call to watch the movie - we'll vote on which movie to watch in Slack.

BAIR Research Mentoring Program

We at the Berkeley AI Research Lab (BAIR) invite you to apply for the undergraduate AI research mentoring program. The program matches undergraduates studying computer science who are curious about AI with graduate student mentors. 

If you are not currently involved in undergraduate research, but are interested in participating AI research as an undergraduate in the future, or are interested in a career in this field, this can be a great way to learn more!

You may apply by filling out this form.

Please fill out the application by the end of this week! We will contact you around next week after if we are able to match you with a mentor.
