"Engineer like a girl” - 2:30 pm
The title of the talk is inspired by the famous slogan “Fight like a girl”. The talk is based on the 17 years experience of the author as a woman in engineering, and it is aimed at rising awareness about some well-known and not so well-known challenges of being female in a historically male field. The talk is intended for young women engineers to be, who are interested in gaining some insights and learning what to expect and how to tackle the main issues they will probably go through their careers. Nevertheless, young male engineers are also welcome as they will may experience as well some of the topics addressed in the talk, and they will become self-aware of some commonly accepted behaviors.
