Beneath the Surface: A Panel on Failure and Vulnerability

Join SAC and ACM-W for an evening of open and honest conversation surrounding failure and vulnerability! (Facebook event link)

You've probably heard that failure is a great opportunity and it isn’t something to be afraid or ashamed of. However, CSE has developed a culture of being extremely ambitious, and handling failure among a community of such high-performing peers is particularly difficult.

We hope to decrease the stigma our department faces regarding failure and vulnerability through a panel of highly respected people and through small group discussions. We also hope that you will reflect on your own relationships with failure and vulnerability in this event.

The panel will be featuring special guests including Lauren Bricker, Dan Grossman, Crystal Hoyer, Kevin Jamieson, Ed Lazowska, and Jen Mankoff! Dinner provided.
