MILPITAS, Calif. – March 3, 2020 – The vital importance of workplace diversity in growing the global semiconductor industry’s talent pipeline will take center stage as the  Women in Semiconductors (WiS) program returns to the SEMI  Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference (ASMC 2020) on May 4 in Saratoga Springs, New York. Back by popular demand, WiS continues to connect more women in the semiconductor manufacturing industry while driving critical discussions across genders. The WiS program runs in conjunction with ASMC 2020, May 4-7.  Registration is complimentary to ASMC registrants and is now open.
