Love Your Job More - Believing and Achieving: January 23 at 2pm CT with Kathleen Buse. 
Research has shown that complex, multi-level factors impact women’s ability to achieve in engineering and other male-dominated professions. Structural issues in the workplace have been well documented but newer streams of research have focused on how society and culture impact a woman’s self-efficacy or her belief in herself to succeed. Our own research has focused on characteristics that distinguish women who persist in the engineering profession and we found that self-efficacy is directly related to a woman’s commitment to the profession. In this webinar, we seek to have everyone “love their job more” by understanding their own self-beliefs. We first discuss self-efficacy especially in a professional engineering role. We will share how self-efficacy differs for women from their male colleagues in the engineering profession, and we will provide participants with specific actions to aid them in developing their own beliefs to achieve and succeed.

About the Speaker: 

Starting at the Eastman Kodak Company as an engineer, Kathleen has worked in various technical and management roles for more than 25 years. As an engineer she has developed new products, designed new systems, and led continuous improvement of products and processes. She has managed engineering, operations, IT, plant and facilities maintenance, product development and quality functions. Kathleen obtained her PhD in Management: Designing Sustainable Systems from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. Her research has focused on women who persist in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) professions and includes leadership development, women in leadership, women’s careers and especially women in engineering and other STEM careers. Today Kathleen works at Case Western Reserve University where she is on the faculty for the Leadership Lab for Women in STEM. Additionally Kathleen is an adjunct professor in both the Weatherhead School of Management and the Institute for Management and Engineering. She teaches classes on product design, materials and manufacturing, marketing and research practices. Kathleen also works as a management consultant and career coach specifically targeting women in leadership and STEM careers.
