AAUW presentations Saturday spotlight women in high-tech

The Los Altos-Mountain View branch of the American Association of University Women has scheduled computer engineer Aditi Vijaykumar of Synopsys Inc. to discuss her trials and successes as a female engineer 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Los Altos main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road.

Vijaykumar’s presentation is designed to encourage girls to pursue professions in the math and science fields. She earned a master’s degree in computer engineering from Cincinnati University and works at Synopsys as an application engineer.

The local AAUW and the Los Altos Kiwanis and Rotary clubs raise funds to send Los Altos and Mountain View middle school girls to the annual Tech Trek at Stanford University, where they participate in activities sponsored by women in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. After Vijaykumar’ talk, the girls will share their perspectives on Tech Trek and their futures in the STEM industries.

American Association of University Women membership is open to college graduates with an interest in supporting opportunities for women.
