Women Engineers and Equality
October 26, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The talk will be based on the women engineers and equality. Whereas in 2019 the world is freer and fairer than ever before, there are still many human rights challenges that are limiting our daily lives and one of those is inequality between men and women. According to the World Economic Forum, if the present scenario continues, it will take around 170 years to reach equality. This talk will address some current issues and will focus on a number of aspects:
- How to transform challenges into opportunities as a women engineer in the career.
- The visibility problem of women engineers.
- In a world where rights and opportunities for women and men are equal from a legal point of view – why is there such a low number of women engineers and women in top management positions?
The talk will also address some of the ideas and projects considered by the IEEE Region 8 Women in Engineering Sub Committee.
