  1. The AWEsome! Program at Los Alamos National Laboratory

    Heidi Ann Hahn, Barbara A Lynn
  2. AWEsome! is a new career pipeline program for female undergraduate engineers. In this presentation, the Laboratory’s underutilization problem, and the rationale for AWEsome!’s potential to affect it, are described. Recruitment efforts, and results achieved, are discussed. A wrap-up includes capture of takeaways. Participants will provide feedback, insights, and advice throughout.


  4. Engaging Allies and Leveraging Partnerships to Increase Persistence of College Women in STEM

    Peggy Shadduck, Cherrie Fisher
  5. The goal of this workshop is to identify barriers to educational persistence of women in STEM and discuss the essential role that community colleges, in partnership with universities, engineering employers, and professional organizations, can play in overcoming those barriers.


  7. Optimizing Intersectionality: Creating Authentic and Inclusive Spaces of Dialogue

    Nicole Nieto  

    This workshop focuses on creating spaces for authentic dialogue. Particular attention will be paid to understanding one’s social identities and how these identities impact one’s experiences. Social identities including gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation and ability will be examined. Experiential activities for creating more inclusive cultures through dialogue will be utilized.


  9. ABET Diversity and Inclusion Committee Listening Session

    Kristen P. Constant  

    This is a listening session/conversation to discuss the role of accreditation, specifically ABET, in developing students who will contribute to an inclusive engineering culture that values and embraces diversity. 


10:45 am - 11:45 am


  1. Diversifying Your Graduate Student Application Pool and Changing a College Culture in the Process

    La'Tonia Stiner-Jones  

    Three years ago we created a prospective graduate student open house to enhance the diversity of our graduate student application, admission and enrollment pools. During the session, I will show you how we have grown the number of non-OSU attendees from 20 to over 80 and share the outcomes and drivers of our success. I will share takeaways to help you with your departmental, college, or institutional efforts.


  3. Models for Mentoring Females in Engineering: Creating A Sustained Interest in an Engineering Career

    Catherine Amelink  

    This session will share promising mentoring practices for the transition of undergraduate and graduate students into long-term engineering careers in industry or academia. Participants will have time to share program design, impact(s) of those programs, and the extent to which promising practices can be used to advance mentoring programs.


  5. Fixing the Culture Rather than the Women: What Will You Do on Monday Morning?

    Apriel K Hodari, Lily T Ko, Nuria Jaumot-Pascual, Maria (Mia) Ong  

    In this workshop, we will share findings from our research on successful women of color in engineering and facilitate program participants’ considerations of their own organizational contexts. Come prepared to address the question, “What will you do on Monday morning?” to re-vision engineering culture and engender success for all women.


  7. Establishing an Inclusive Culture in Faculty Hiring

    Beverly Louie, Catherine Ashcraft, Brad McLain, National Center for Women in IT, Boulder, Colorado

    This workshop will guide participants towards developing personal skills and materials to address unconscious biases that can thwart the best intentions of faculty hiring committees to find and support diverse candidates. Participants will learn new strategies that can foster a more diverse and inclusive departmental culture.
