Alise (Hui) Wang, Cybersecurity Client Operations Integrator

Alise Wang (she/her) is passionate about learning and searching for innovative solutions to challenges that seem impossible. She graduated from uOttawa (sorry Ravens!) with a BASc in Chemical Engineering and Engineering Management in 2020. She has had a growing interest in the tech industry since her first year of undergrad, which she is currently pursuing as a Client Operations Integrator for CGI’s National Cybersecurity team. She is an active and purpose-driven community leader and enjoys spending a portion of her free time empowering and mentoring minority groups in identifying their own potential, and has held leadership roles as the Chapter Administrator and Chair of the Women in Leadership Foundation Ottawa Chapter. Additionally, Alise has been an IEEE member and volunteer since 2015, and previously held various executive roles there during her undergrad where she organized, hosted and attended several conferences and panels about the latest technological advancements which only grew her interest in the industry. The other portion of her free time is dedicated to various “non-active” activities that include (but are not limited to) re-watching shows on Netflix and pretending to be a pretentious coffee drinker to reminisce about her past life where she was a barista for over half of a decade.
