PTC WEN efforts amidst COVID 19

Since the start of the COVID 19 pandemic, the Women Engineers Network continue to be very active  in providing assistance to our frontliners and deprived communities, acting as frontliners themselves or giving the much needed support to hospitals and institutions.

A 3-part episode on Women Engineers in the Philippines, broadcast via the radio station  DZUP, Department of Women and Development Studies of the University of the Philippines will have officers from PTC WEN as special guests. The broadcast is hosted by Roselle Leah K. Rivera and will be aired on August 2, 9 and 16 from 12nn to 1 pm.
