WiSE Lecture: You're More Than What You Wear
WhenWednesday, Apr. 16, 2014, 6 – 7 p.m.
Description

Note location change to Kane Hall, room 130!



Featuring Dianne Chong, PhD, Vice President of Materials, Manufacturing, Structures & Support, The Boeing Company

Registration is free, but required. Reception and networking following the lecture.

This lecture is about much more than fashion. Speaker Dianne Chong is not only a vice president at The Boeing Company; she is also a blogger, writer, public speaker, parent, engineer, and scientist. In a recent guest column in The Seattle Times, Chong wrote:

"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.
