*Scroll to the bottom of page to fill out the nomination form*

 

Nominations will be accepted through Monday, June 1, 2020 at 11:59 EDT.

WEPAN, Women in Engineering ProActive Network, is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1990 to be a catalyst for change to enhance the success of women in the engineering professions. WEPAN's Board of Directors actively seeks nominations for positions of Director for fiscal year 2020-2022.

WEPAN is the leading champion in North America for leveraging research and promising practices to propel the inclusion of women in the field of engineering. WEPAN’s network connects over 1000 advocates who actively pursue strategies and implement solutions to increase participation, retention and success of women and other underrepresented groups in engineering from college to executive leadership.

 

The ideal board member will have significant career experience as a practicing engineer, an engineering educator, or will have career experience in an engineering company or at an institution of higher education with an engineering, engineering technology, and/or computer science curriculum or an expert in a field required for WEPAN organizational needs. S/he will have leadership skills to drive change and advance WEPAN’s vision of 50% women in engineering by 2050.

 

The FY2021 WEPAN board will be seated on July 1, 2020. Board members are expected to take an active role in fundraising, ideally through a commitment from their employer at the Premium Level (institutional member) or Motivator Level (corporate member) or greater, but also may be through (1) engaging with and influencing members of professional networks to garner equivalent funding or (2) in-kind contributions such as sustained committee work, personnel resources or other gifts that support WEPAN's operations. Traditionally, the board member will have a commitment from their employer to support travel to the three required board meetings, the annual conference, and other potential WEPAN opportunities and obligations. Please read and download a more detailed description of the roles and responsibilities for board members.

 

Questions about WEPAN board leadership can be sent to Lee Ann Cochran (President@wepan.org) or Roger Green (roger.green@ndsu.edu
