  • “We all want to get promoted but what are the “keys to the kingdom?” How can we position ourselves to be the one person our unit, section, company can’t do without? Barb will let you all in on the secrets she’s discovered over the years of her government service. The sage wisdom is geared toward government civilians but the truths can be applied to military or commercial companies equally.”

Dayton Section Is Well Represented at the IEEE Women In Engineering (WIE) Summit USA EAST, Nov 6-8, 2015, Philadelphia PA

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

IEEE USA held an IEEE WIE (Women in Engineering) Summit USA East Nov 6-8, 2015, in Philadelphia, PA. The IEEE Dayton Section and Wright State University sponsored attendance for Rachael Kneice, Monica Sam, and Emma Sum, electrical engineering and computer science students at Wright State University, Fairborn OH. The summit had three tracks: Inspiration and Empowerment; Perspectives; and STEM Outreach. The speakers encouraged members to engineer ways to close the gender gap. Attendees had an opportunity to network with professionals and fellow students between the tracks, Saturday included a Career Fair, and a quick tour of Philadelphia followed the conference. Two IEEE Dayton Section officers served on the Summit organizing committee and attended the conference. Barbara Frantom, the Dayton Section Treasurer, served as the Summit Technical Program Chair, and Felicia Harlow, the Dayton Section Secretary, served as the Summit Facilities and Registration Chair. Their contributions were critical to the success of the conference and the Dayton section was well represented at the Summit!
