NCEITA’s chapter of Women in Information Science and Engineering (WISE) is holding its first program of the year on March 4 and it will focus on long-term projections of the IT industry and relevant job markets.

The panel, “A Sustainable IT Career,” will look at what IT jobs will be in demand for the next 5-7 years and how to plan one’s future IT career.

Sitting on the panel will be Roland Stephen, faculty fellow at the N.C. State Institute for Emerging Issues; Karen Christie, programs manager for the U.S. Theater Field Communication and co-lead for Cisco RTP Women’s Network; Mary Ellen Randall, president and CEO of Ascot Technologies and current president of regional IEEE; and Linda Schrum, a consultant transition and outplacement firm DBM.

The WISE program will begin at 7:30 AM and last until 9 AM at the SAS Institute Building T in Cary. Those interested in attending can register online. The fee for NCEITA members is $20 and for non-members who register by March 1, it is $25. Cost is $30 at the door.
