How Gender Diversity Can Drive Innovation in the STEM Fields
Dr. Mary A. Wells
Dean College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, University of Guelph
Chair Ontario Network of Women in Engineering

Women have and continue to play an important role in science, engineering, technology and math (the so called STEM fields). However, today, there continues to be fewer women who pursue careers in these fields, especially the engineering profession. This occurs despite the fact that women are not objectively worse at math or science by any measure and in fact on average girls typically receive higher grades than do boys in mathematics throughout elementary and secondary school. More concerning is that women that do chose to study and work in a STEM field, appear to "drop out" at a higher rate than men at consecutive career stages – the so called "leaky pipeline". In order to change this we need to create a cultural shift in both our society and the STEM profession so that people think beyond stereotypical perceptions of who belongs towards more expansive notions about how these fields need diversity to thrive and drive innovation.

Cost: $55 non-OAME members
$40 OAME Members and Students
$0 presenters

Payment: CIS Ontario Schools – please bring a single cheque made payable to ISOMA to the conference.

* Registration will close on Friday, December 15, 2017. NOTE: Day-of registration will not be accepted.
