Four Frames
A Framework for Promoting Gender Equity in Organizations

Join us at WEPAN’s 2015 Change Leader Forum

Roadmap to Inclusion: Engineering Excellence for the 21st Century,
just outside of Denver in Broomfield, CO, fro
m June 9-11, 2015.

WEPAN will continue the dialogue launched at the 2014 Change Leader Forum, bringing together leading experts in culture change open a 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 2015 Forum will provide 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.

The Forum will continue to be organized around the Framework for Promoting Gender Equity in Organizations which describes the four ways (prepare women, create equal opportunity, value difference, re-envision work culture) that organizations can promote gender equity.  As the four Frames progress, they become more focused on the complexities of organizational cultures and take into account a greater number of factors.  This research suggests that substantial culture change in engineering will require a broader spectrum of partners working at multiple levels and the Change Leader Forum will focus on this purposeful rebuilding of the culture in engineering education and the engineering workplace.

What participants said the benefits were from the 2014 Change Leader Forum

Forum Content:

"I am new to a position with women in engineering. Much of the content was new and interesting. I also valued the opportunity to meet and connect with others leading and involved with women in engineering programs".

"Understand challenges and issues affecting gender diversity in engineering programs and ongoing efforts and research to help address this. As a male faculty member interested in making a difference this is immensely helpful".

 

Forum Networking:

"In addition to the informative sessions, a main benefit for participating in WEPAN are the connections to talk and share ideas, road blocks, and information with others in similar positions and with like-minded goals".

"Networking, thinking about ideas from a change leader perspective, understanding how activating frames 3 and 4 must be accomplished to make a difference for women in STEM".
