Inspirational Committee Member

Valeria Popescu


Valeria has been both an inspirational and integral part of the WIT committee from its founding to the present day. As the founder of the society, her commitment to the cause has not wavered as she remained passionate about bridging diversity gaps in the technology field. She worked vigorously to organise events with top-class speakers delivering some of the best line-ups the society has ever seen. Thanks to Valeria, WIT held talks with successful women in the tech industry such as Cambridge researchers, CEOs and Google engineers, delivered events with Siemens engineers and ran the How to get into Fintech event with women from Bloomberg, Citi and Lloyds. Despite not knowing whether or not she will be president, Valeria started setting up society sponsorships with Goldman Sachs for next year. All the while Valeria continues to write about and share industry internship, graduate and scholarship opportunities for women.

Regardless of the pressures on her time, Valeria always put herself at her members’ disposal. For so many, she is the first port of call for advice and help both regarding society matters and university life in general. She is a source of inspiration in her persistence and dedication to having WIT flourish as a society.
