ACE Panel Discussion - Women in STEM

On March 26, ACE Mentorship Panel Series brought to you another great and successful event Women in STEM featuring six young and seasoned professionals Arla Kasaj, Cezarina Kora, Elda Topuzi, Entela Zaffino, Lediona Nishani Ph.D, and Leonora AbdullahuAlso, we had the honour to have Ardita Karaj moderate the panel discussion. 

Almost 100 people gathered to listen to six Albanian women panelists coming from different fields of Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The crowd was attentive and while 80% of it consisted of women, we had quite a few men present as well to support and listen to the stories shared by our distinguished panelists.

ACE was not only proud to host an array of brilliant womenfolk, but also this event was run by dedicated and service-oriented women who work tirelessly to make our community better.
