Women in ECE (WinECE) is an organization encompassing all female undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. The WinECE Fall dinner is an annual event for the women of ECE to get to know each other and to hear a little bit more about what it's like to be a woman in industry or academia.  There is no strict dress code for the event but we encourage business casual.
