Women in Engineering ProActive Network (WEPAN) is pleased to announce their 22nd annual conference, to be held in Seattle, Washington from June 21 through June 23, 2011 . The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference will follow in Vancouver, BC from June 26 through June  29, 2011. 
The purpose of the conference is to share and investigate ideas that focus on advancing women in engineering by transforming engineering education. Participants, each of whom has a unique and significant role to play in achieving the full participation of women in engineering, will share innovative strategies for developing a highly prepared, diverse engineering workforce that has achieved technical excellence and learned how to think and design creatively.   Our emphasis on promoting women’s success—at all ages and in all capacities—will provide the momentum for transforming engineering education.  The following themes will be the focus of this year's national conference:
