The 2016 Change Leader Forum, taking place June 14 - 16, 2016 in Broomfield, CO just outside Denver, will bring together leading experts in culture change to continue the crucial national discourse about the impact of culture on engaging and retaining diverse communities of women in engineering—both in education and the workforce. The Forum provides opportunities for both novice and expert participants working to promote women in engineering change initiatives as WEPAN continues its initiative to accelerate culture change to achieve the full inclusion of diverse communities of women in engineering.

In addition to five plenary sessions, participants will have opportunity to attend workshops, panels, Hi-Fives for Change talks, focused conversations and a Showcase Reception. The 2016 Change Leader Forum will include four distinct tracks (click track name to show session titles in each track):
