STEM Leaders and Their Engineering Daughters
With the dearth of women in engineering and engineering-related fields, there are some factors that correlate positively for women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). One of those factors is having a parent who works in a STEM field. The probability of a girl majoring in hard science increases 11 percentage points with a parent who works in STEM. Why is that? What does it take to raise an engineer daughter? Watch this panel of executives (with STEM backgrounds) and their engineer daughters at the Annual Conference of the Society of Women Engineer, WE18.
Leading Innovation in The Public Sector: Perspectives From NASA, U.S. Army, and the U.S. Air Force
At the Annual Conference of the Society of Women Engineers, WE18, this one-of-a kind panel of experts share their processes for new innovation — from creation to execution though the pipelines.
The New Rules of Teamwork
Eighty-four percent of employees are “matrixed” to some extent today, meaning they work on multiple teams daily. How can early and midcareer women distinguish their performance as a “teamer” and a standout, particularly when joining teams that quickly form and disband? Selena Rezvani explains how to set the example, leverage the “magic ratio,” and identify the operating modes of one’s teammates. This Mega Session from the Annual Conference of the Society of Women Engineers, WE18, has practical action steps to demonstrate both character and competence on teams and harness the collective intelligence of groups.
Present Your Science: Transforming Slide Design
Looking for improved and practical slide design strategies that go way beyond killing your audience’s interest with bullet point after bullet point? This Mega Session from the Annual Conference of the Society of Women Engineers, WE18, with speaker Melissa Marshall takes a deep dive into the world of slide design and challenges the status quo of boring, text-heavy slides with innovative, research-based strategies for more effective and engaging visual aids. Learn a framework for evaluating the effectiveness of slides and innovative new strategies for showing science to an audience with exciting slide design. WARNING: This workshop results in dramatically improved slides and you will never think about or design slides in the same way ever again!
