UW CSE’s Yoky Matsuoka was selected as one of “10 Women to Watch in 2010” by Mattel, in connection with a Barbie promotion. (You’ll recall that Mattel is rolling out “Computer Engineer Barbie” later this year.) The 10 are an amazing group — check it out here.
In connection with this, and in support of “Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day,” Yoky mentored Illinois high school student Ciara Proctor on April 14. Representatives of the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), who nominated Ciara, participated.
Congratulations to Yoky and Ciara!
