The University of Washington College of Engineering and Qualcomm present:
2014 Women in Science and Engineering Spring Lecture
You Are More Than What You Wear
Featuring Dianne Chong, PhD
"Debating clothes and hair may seem superficial, but it reveals the critical challenges women face attaining a technology career and — more importantly — keeping one. I started with undergraduate degrees in psychology and biology, so I appreciate the relevance, both professionally and personally.
"When a young physicist asks me what to wear to work, she’s not asking for fall-fashion trends. She’s actually asking: ‘How do I fit in at my office, where everyone else is a man?’ The fact that women are still asking these questions exposes a deep sense of not belonging."
Space is limited! Registration is free, but required. Reception and networking following the lecture.
