This is the third edition of a half-day forum, including talks, panels, structured mentoring sessions, and more. The goal of this event is to help facilitate women and underrepresented minorities (URM) to advance their careers in academia and industry, and hence, to help increase diversity in the EDA community. Through an interactive medium, the forum will provide practical tips to women and URM on how to succeed and overcome possible hurdles in their career growth, while at the same time, connecting senior and junior researchers in networking and mentoring sessions.

The event is jointly sponsored by IEEE CEDA and ACM SIGDA.
