IFEES GEDC IUCEE Global Webinar: R2T: Beyond the Books- Breaking the Gender Bias

April 13, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+5.5

IFEES GEDC IUCEE Global Webinar: R2T: Beyond the Books- Breaking the Gender Bias


To build upon our success our Rising to the Top book series, IFEES and GEDC has created a monthly virtual space for our authors and other young women engineers to unite and discuss their personal journeys and experiences together. Our goal is to form an open, honest, and engaging space where engineers can join to learn about experiences from women around the world as they navigate and prosper in STEM fields. Each month, we will pair a set of authors from different parts of the world and an aspiring young woman in STEM to engage in an intimate discussion about the challenges and triumphs in their personal and professional journeys that have shaped the women they are today. Join us to not only see how these women Rise to the Top but how they lift while they rise.

The theme of this week’s webinar focuses on breaking the gender bias.
