Showcase Presentations and Booths:

  1. Development of STEM Identity in Undergraduate Female Students

    Priscila Pereira, Edyta Dudek, Edyta Dudek, Pauline Maki, Pauline Maki, Veronica Arreola
  2. The UIC Women in Science and Engineering program (WISE) analyzed the conflicts between identity as a woman and views of a scientist or engineer of women STEM undergraduates. We describe interrelationships among identity, psychological well-being and STEM performance of WISE participants in comparison to non-WISE undergraduates. (Track 1)


  4. Women in Engineering, Mathematics and Science (EMS) Mentor Program

    Kim Sargent
  5. Strong relationships and a supportive network help the academic and social transition and persistence of female STEM students. Exposure to female mentors encourages a sense of belonging. This session will describe the Women in EMS Mentor Program and provide many ideas to use in your own mentor programs. (Track 1)


  1. Cultivating Engineering Culture in a Global Environment

  2. Pinfan Lee  

    Engineer work could be tedious and boring, so to have fun at work is very important. How do we work, learn and grow at the same time? How do we feel being supported? These are goals of a good engineer culture. (Track 2)


  4. Corporate Service Corps: Valuing Diversity through International Assignment

    Jessica Eidem, Sara Willett, Dan Gateno  

    This session will feature several IBM employees who will share their experiences and explain the importance of global volunteerism and its impact on inclusion in the workplace. A recent partnership with Michelle Obama's Let Girls Learn initiative puts even more focus on inclusiveness and advancing women around the world. (Track 2)


  6. Retaining and Advancing Women Engineers through Mentoring and Networking

    Gönül Kaletunç 

    Retaining and advancing women engineers merits attention because 40 percent of women engineers quit by age 30. There is a need and opportunity to provide social and career management skills to women engineering students. I designed and implemented a unique mentoring program structured around a curriculum to address this need. (Track 2)


  1. Inclusive Excellence and Excellent Inclusion

    Raymonda Burgman
  2. Is it possible to meet today’s challenges with the methods we used yesterday? This is a salient question on any campus but especially those founded over 100 years ago. Many were not established to educate women. We’d like to share a simple exercise one can undertake to start practicing inclusive excellence. (Track 3)


  1. WEPAN’S Engineering Inclusive Teaching (EIT): Faculty Professional Development Project Highlight

    Kelly Cross
  2. WEPAN’s NSF GSE funded Engineering Inclusive Teaching (EIT): Faculty Professional Development Project provides innovative faculty professional development webinars that foster engineering faculty capacity to provide inclusive educational experiences for their students and complementary webinar downloadable resources. Metrics on project success will be shared. (Track 4)
