Women in the Workplace

engineering_still_needs_more_women-hero

Although the number of female engineers today has greatly improved since the early 1980s, when only 5.8% of engineers in the U.S. were women, it’s still surprisingly low. Currently, only 14% of engineers are women, according to the Congressional Joint Economic Committee (ASME).

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Women in Engineering, Chicago Chapter and Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Chicago Regional Section will host a panel discussion, moderated by Diane Rink PMP, that speaks about women in the workplace. Topics such as programs and strategies for promoting women to leadership positions will be covered. Panelists include representatives such as General Electric, Schneider Electric, Boeing, and Ambitech.

The event is sponsored by the MEM program and will be held Wednesday, March 30th from 5:30pm-8:30pm at Jenner and Block, LLP: 353 N Clark St, 45th Floor, Chicago. Be sure to check in at the security desk! Register now, seats are limited!
