Women in Antennas and Microwave Engineering Workshop
The EurAAP working group for Women in Antennas and Propagation (WiAP) will organize a workshop during the conference. The workshop will consist on:
- A talk given by Katerina Galitskaya (Radientum Oy) on “Building a personal brand as a woman in engineering”. This talk is sponsored by the EurAAP Women in Antennas and Propagation (WiAP) working group.
- A talk given by Ana Peláez Pérez (Televes) on "Evolution of women in engineering. New opportunities in the digital age." This talk is sponsored by the European Microwave Association (EuMA).
- An open discussion where all attendees will be welcomed to address their concerns and/or ideas to strengthen the presence of women in our community.
The main objective of the EurAAP WiAP working group is to increase the presence of women in the antennas and propagation society. This is done by encouraging and supporting young women to pursue a career in this topic and by raising awareness about the barriers that prevent the integration of women in our community.

EuMA, the European Microwave Association, is a non-profit organization working to foster connections within the microwave community and raise public understanding of the benefits of microwave research and technology by pursuing educational, training, and research initiatives. We aim to give European engineers and scientists in the micro- and millimeter-wave field a unified voice and ensure full recognition of microwaves as a vital industrial and research area by the European Commission.
