Conference Access:  2023 ASEE Annual Conference

The WOMEN IN ENGINEERING DIVISION (WIED) is seeking papers for the 2024 ASEE Annual Conference in Portland, Oregon, from June 23-26, 2024. Abstract submission opens October 1, 2023, and the deadline for submission is November 1, 2023. Papers that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion on topics related to women and gender issues in engineering, computing and/or technology are strongly encouraged. This work might include outreach and recruitment of K-12 students, faculty recruitment and retention, innovative student retention programs and assessment. Topics that concern mentoring, recruitment, retention, leadership and professional development for women and gender-diverse faculty and administrators (for example, work/life balance and dual-career issues) are relevant and timely. Other topics might include workplace climate, university programs, policies, reports on initiatives, and considerations of intersectionality (e.g., gender and race). Transformative research that informs the development of impactful and forward-thinking programs and policies also are of high relevance. Popular sessions at recent conferences have included panels focused on a variety of topics, including improving the experience of marginalized students on engineering design teams, advocacy for gender equity, listening and negotiation, well-being, interactive theater to promote difficult dialogues about inequities in engineering education, managing dual careers, work/life integration issues, care for family members, and academic leadership strategies. If you have ideas for panels and/or would be willing to help organize a panel, please contact the program chair. Panels that can be co-sponsored with other divisions are strongly encouraged.
