The Society of Women Engineers - Pittsburgh Section is proud to host the Wow! That's Engineering! Event - an educational, hands on workshop for middle school girls in or entering the 6th - 8th grades and their parent. This is a dual track event: the girls will get to experience practicing engineering design with three hands on activities, while the parents/guardians will meet with experienced engineers and moms who have raised women engineers, and complete a hands on activity of their own that they will be able to take home and do with their daughter after the event.

Understanding why unconscious bias exists and how it affects our decision-making processes is a key element of many successful contemporary Diversity and Inclusion programs. Recent research in brain science, social identity studies, and neurological research has allowed us to see how unconscious bias is "wired" into our brains. Each of us has some personal collection of unconscious biases gathered over time from our families, from our culture, from our socialization, from our training, from our experiences, from the media, and from our friends. As professionals and leaders responsible for the lives or livelihoods of others, it is important that we become aware of our own biases so that we can acknowledge their automatic influence and then choose to make a well-considered decision. This lecture will introduce a method of helping engineers to engage in conversation around diversity and inclusion issues in a non-confrontational manner using the Diversity and Knowledge cards recently published by Arup and SWE. These cards summarize the key research available regarding some of the most common biases present in technical fields in the culture of North America.

Dr. Pamela McCauley delivers a passionate lecture/conversation on the criticality of women engineers seeking, accepting and excelling in leadership – today! She inspires and educates participants on leadership and innovation principles and how to make these crucially important characteristics both real and attainable. Webinar participants will leave this meeting understanding what it means for them to “walk the talk,” going beyond “leaning in,” to begin real change across the board - immediately. Her recently published book, Transforming Your STEM Career Through Leadership and Innovation: Inspiration for Strategies for Women (ELSEVIER Academic Press), is the research-based foundation for this keynote address and a must-have guide for anyone wishing or needing to develop leadership skills. Dr. McCauley includes a series of encouraging, humorous and empowering examples and guidelines designed to support the leader as she develops and excels in a corporation, institution, government, and community.
