Team Bios

Liza comes from a small town in the Western part of Ukraine. She is in her final 11th grade of an average public school. As the Executive Director of the WiTech Ukraine, Liza is willing to provide all Ukrainian girls with an accessible opportunity for education in STEM girls inspire and empower them. Together with her team, they have developed the Podcast “WiPodcast,” a telegram channel with updating opportunities for women “WiTegram”, a monthly newsletter with the list of STEM competitions in Ukraine for girls, and several online and offline conferences in different Ukrainian cities about the WiTech’s opportunities for more Ukrainian girls in STEM. Her chapter is currently working on the new project “WiTeach”: three month-long courses in 3D modeling, biotech, and coding. 

Yelyzaveta enjoys volunteering and public speaking, so last summer (2021), she went through the rigorous selection process and got a chance to participate in the “She is science” charity event along with the First Lady of Ukraine. At the event, she was one of the guest speakers on the panel discussion, where in front of the 200 guests such as European Ambassadors, and Ministers of Ukraine, she talked about her pro-gender equality activism and the experience of developing WiTech Ukraine. The whole event was broadcasted on all national channels. 

Apart from her leading position in the Chapter, Liza is also a European Youth Parliament member, coding beginner, and a competitive Ballroom dancer.
