Alexandra Bremers, Human-Machine Interface Researcher (Jaguar Land Rover), RisingWISE 2018 participant, explains how the course has proved invaluable to her:
The experience proved to be absolutely amazing. Among the activities were lectures, panel discussions, interactive sessions, company tours, networking dinners and even a salsa class. The programme equipped me with new skills and knowledge, and gave me a unique network of incredibly talented and supportive female mentors and peers. All in all I feel incredibly lucky to be part of the RisingWISE 2018 cohort, and I recommend anyone who has the chance to, to apply for this life-changing experience.
