Mooi Choo Chuah, ADVANCE Chair and Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, recently returned from the 31st Annual International Conference on Computer Communication INFOCOM 2012 meeting where she led the N2 Women Meeting & Discussion group. The title of her talk was "N Habits of Highly Effective Researchers." This is modeled in part on Steven Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People which has helped people in all fields achieve their goals by focusing on introspection and personal change to cultivate habits that lead to results. Dr. Chuah put these habits in context for women in computer networking research careers.
Networking Networking Women (N2 Women) is a discipline-specific community for researchers in the communications and networking research fields. The main goal of N2 Women is to foster connections among the under-represented women in computer networking and related research fields. N2 Women allows women to connect with other women who share the same research interests, who attend the same conferences, who face the same career hurdles, and who experience the same obstacles.
