As a young association in existence since January 22nd 2018,the following people have not only,always, encouraged and suported us throughout all our journey till present, but have also acceptd to provide written statements on what they think of our initiative,ICOTEL.
I truly appreciate and respect initiatives such as that of ICOTEL, where young women in Technology fields support and inspire each other to give the best of their talent wherever they find themselves, and especially as they study to become professionals. As women we are still a minority in STEM but we keep growing in numbers and in impact! And when we do it, we are excellent at it! Keep up this brilliant initiative! You are contributing to changing the story of the next generation of women in Tech!

Normally, it's good initiative first all to have the idea of togetherness,standing as innovative people especially of the gender looked at as weak. I know they must have some good projects but I think they need more exposure and make more people aware of their existence,projects and how to be funded.

ICOTEL is a great initiative that inspires Ladies into engineering, ensures they're focused and innovative while studying engineering and also sees that they excel and impact society after graduating. It's a much needed group seeing that generally, ladies don't go into such fields in their numbers when they possess the skills needed to compete therein.

My relationship with ICOTEL begins before the official birth of the group. I have always known these ladies to be innovative, objective, goal-oriented, deadline-driven, and very ambitious. The quality of their output reflects the efforts invested to realize a named project. Their services are worth commending.
