Women in Antennas and Propagation

The general goal of the  Women in Antennas and Propagation  Working Group is to strengthen the women presence and involvement in the Antennas and Propagation community, particularly in Europe. 
The working group will offer a framework in which discussing the needs of the community and devising actions aimed at supporting these needs. One of the items that has emerged is that only a few female candidates apply to vacancies in industry or large research and technology organizations. A way to address this point could be either through presentations from employees of these organizations highlighting the career opportunities for women, e.g., by sharing a personal experience/the experience of a colleague, or through presentations of the HR department, e.g., providing suggestions on the preparation of an application and the job interview, and/or suggestions for career growth/career step.
