Besides, it was sponsored by HILTI Asia IT Services Sdn. Bhd., KLN Services Sdn. Bhd. and BeauTyra Cosmetics.

On the first day, the program has been welcomed by a speech from Professor Dr Aldrin Abdullah, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Student Development Affairs and Alumni. Then it followed by the interactive session with Dato (Dr.) Nicol Ann David, a World Games' Greatest Athlete of All Time, to share her valuable journey in becoming the World First Female Squash Player that has been moderated by Ms Alya Adlina.

In line with the International Women's Day 2021 theme of "Choose to Challenge", the webinar lead by Ms Dania Ridzlon was indeed a success. The School of Computer Sciences would like to congratulate to the whole organizing committee. The Computer Science Society has proved that our students can go beyond their area to organize programs that could inspire many young generations to be agents of change and be bold to face challenges.
