Women in Engineering Panel Discussion and Networking Breakfast

Thursday, May 4 | 7:30am – 9:00am | Room 162A

There's an ever-increasing amount of talk about gender equality in tech – and with good reason.

Consider the facts:

  • There's a shortage of women in engineering positions
  • Companies with diverse teams that include women throughout the ranks perform better financially
  • The current US STEM talent crisis could be alleviated if women were encouraged to pursue engineering careers

Join us for breakfast and lively conversation during our Women in Engineering Panel Discussion, where we'll explore topics such as:

  • Professional opportunities for women in engineering
  • Why women represent less than 12% of electrical & mechanical engineers
  • Our panelists' careers in engineering-driven professions

Open to all ESC and BIOMEDevice attendees
