Workshop for Future Women Faculty: Sept. 2013ATTENTION PHds and Candidates:The University of Michigan College of Engineering has recently established an annual future faculty development workshop for potential women and underrepresented minority faculty members. The first NextProf Workshop in 2012 had a focus on underrepresented minorities. Fifty-three high-potential Ph.D.s, postdocs and Ph.D. students attended, and met with more than 30 current faculty members from Michigan and elsewhere. Participants rated the event extremely favorably.All travel (domestic) and lodging expenses will be paid for the selected participants.For more details and to nominate someone, please visit the website:The deadline for all application materials to be received is June 3, 2013.
IEEE WIE Resources:
You can download this app which will show you why other women have chosen engineering and what value they have received from their careers.
Learn more about WIE, its scope, mission and organization.
Did you know that one of the benefits of IEEE membership is being able to participate as a mentor or mentee?
Resources for Students
Video on challenges facing engineering students from a former football player and his daughter.
Google science fair winner Lauren Hodge and how she came to enjoy science.
This is a great video to show girls so they can get past the misconceptions of what engineers do and inspire them to become engineers.
This newsletter is filled with great stories about women in engineering and keeps you up to date on IEEE activities with Women in engineering.
Be sure to read the award winning Women in Engineering magazine. It has many interesting articles of interest to engineers, women in engineering and students considering careers in engineering.
Come on, you know you like us!!!! Check out the Women in Engineering Facebook page and read all the discussions.
Has a great info graphic on what girls experience in education.
American Association of University Women has several presentations with fascinating research. In an era when women are increasingly prominent in medicine, law and business, why are there so few women scientists and engineers? A new research report by AAUW presents compelling evidence that can help to explain this puzzle. Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics presents in-depth yet accessible profiles of eight key research findings that point to environmental and social barriers – including stereotypes, gender bias and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities – that continue to block women’s participation and progress in science, technology, engineering, and math.
Another great infographic on the contribution of women in technology.
