Current Conference

Thank you for making the 126th Annual Conference & Exposition a success!

Abstract Submission for the 2020 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition will open in September.

The Women in Engineering Division (WIED) is committed to promoting the inclusion and education of diverse individuals and embracing diverse ideas in the professions of engineering and engineering technology. The Women in Engineering Division recognizes that diversity is strength in creativity, broadness of new ideas, and embracing new perspectives to arrive at the most truly innovative, resource-smart solutions possible.

Papers that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion on topics related to women in engineering, computing and/or technology are sought. Such work might include outreach and recruitment of K-12 students, innovative retention programs and their assessment. Topics that concern mentoring, recruitment, retention, leadership and professional development for women faculty and administrators (for example, work/life balance and dual-career issues) are appropriate. Other topics might include workplace climate, university programs, policies or reviews.

Transformative research especially in the social sciences or cognitive sciences that informs the development of impactful and forward-thinking programs and policies also are sought. Popular sessions at recent conferences have included panels focused on improving the experience of marginalized students on engineering design teams, developing practical skills for men as advocates for gender equity, interactive theater to promote difficult dialogues about inequities in engineering education, managing dual careers, work/life integration issues, 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 encouraged.

Authors should submit an abstract of 300 words or less on their paper topic. All ASEE divisions are publish to present. Authors of accepted abstracts must submit a full paper for review and acceptance in order to be included in the WIED program at the conference and in the conference proceedings. Panels must also submit an abstract and may submit a full paper.
