That's a wrap! We're grateful to the Society of Women Engineers for bringing us WE18, where we met exceptional engineers, had inspiring conversations about empowering young professionals in their careers, and showcased our innovative training and assembly solution in partnership with Microsoft HoloLens. We look forward to continuing conversations on breaking boundaries together.
