IEEE Women In Engineering, Importance and Challenges
Date and time
Friday August 6, 9h30-10h45
The workshop will have two parts:
- A presentation that covers the aspects about IEEE WIE vision and mission. It is also going to cover the expected benefits of becoming a member in IEEE and WIE specifically.
- A panel discussion on Cross-Cultural Success Stories of Women In Engineering: the idea is to have role models that represent the different parts of Region 8 (Middle East, Africa and Europe) to discuss the challenges and difficulties they faced in their work and volunteering careers along with their success stories in their respective fields.
W(I)E are active!
Date and time
Friday August 6, 11h15-12h30
The idea of workshop is to interactively discuss how to arrange different activities under the frames of Women In Engineering. The activities must be attractive and interesting. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to be creative, active, enthusiastic. After sharing our experiences about past WIE activities in Leuven, we expect the participants to do the same. Think of a good and a bad example, either as a participant or an organizer! We will investigate both the strengths and drawbacks of these events, and possible ways to improve them. The main aspects of the discussion will be structured around the following questions: How to attract more people, especially women? How to advertise and promote WIE events? How to be successful and interactive? How to keep the participants awake? We are waiting for active collaboration and communication from participants. We are ready to discuss and learn from you!
