Women’s Conference to address women and technology

On Friday, March 6, Saddleback College’s Re-Entry & Women’s Center will host an educational women’s conference entitled “Women and Technology.” 

The conference is designed to encourage women “to increase and enhance their technological knowledge, skills, and capacities, and understand how technology creates more efficiency, productivity, and involvement for women in today’s world.”

Three women, all experts in their fields, are the guest speakers.

Brenda Breen is the president of the Association for Women in Technology in Irvine as well as the principal at Craft Strategies, an educational consulting group. This business leader and information technology leader brings over 20 years of managerial experience to the floor.

Ana Maria Cobos has been the librarian at Saddleback since 1992. She holds two masters’ degrees as well as two undergraduate degrees. She enjoys helping students in their search for information while utilizing the tools available in the campus library.

Melissa Klimowicz was hired by Saddleback as an instructional assistant in the areas of radio and television.  However, as the technology became more computer-based, she moved into the college’s Innovation and Technology Center where she is a top-tier technician.

The conference, which is open to the public, will be held in the Student Services Center 212 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The flexible schedule allows plenty of time for networking.

The admission fee is $20, or $10 for students and employees of the South Orange County Community College District. Registration is first come, first served.
