This event has already occurred and, therefore, can no longer be registered for.

The change of an organization’s culture which reflects a diverse participation in STEM fields can (and should) be driven by both bottoms-up and top-down approaches.   This discussion will include reflections, from a woman’s perspective, on a 30+ year career in STEM fields where significant organizational culture change occurred.  Specific experience from technology practice situations and technology leadership situations will be discussed as examples to demonstrate how both approaches help to move the culture in sustainable directions to increase both the participation and satisfaction of women scientists.
