In the second part of this event, 16 female members gave speeches with topics covering RF transceiver, on chip coil antenna and so on. It was a good opportunity to share their understanding of the state-of-the-art designs and to practice their oral and poster presentation skills.  This activity has also improved women’s self-confidence and enthusiasm in participating IEEE activities.
