It’s not just the pipeline: Why fixing the culture is essential

October 15 12:00 pm-1:00 pm
Lanier Grand Ballroom C Level Four Hilton Americas
TRACK: Organizational Transformation
Presentation / Lightning Talk
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

This presentation will present research from three studies that have concluded that women engineers’ departure from technical workplaces and engineering fields is not a “women’s issue.” Instead, it is the result of organizational failure to support a significant portion of the technical workforce, and in doing so, hurts organizations’ chances at long-term success. The presentation will also focus on factors that help promote men and women’s engagement in technical careers.
