2015 Women Of Vision ABIE Award Finalist for Student of Vision
Julia Edwards is a senior Computer Science major and Economics minor at Smith College. She has a particular interest in engineering program management and tech entrepreneurship. She is the founder and president of Smithies in Computer Science, Smith College’s first club devoted to recruiting and retaining women Computer Science majors. The inspiration for founding the club came in 2013 when Julia discovered her passion for promoting gender equality in the tech industry. She decided to start making her own contribution to closing the gender gap by strengthening the Computer Science program at Smith. After graduation, Julia will be working at Box as a Software Engineer. In the years to come, she hopes to become an Engineering Program Manager before she ultimately builds her own tech startup.
This year the Student of Vision ABIE Award is sponsored by Capital One.
