Engineers Without Borders - Panel Discussion

Discussion on gender and race inequalities in engineering

Date/Time: Tuesday 12th April, 18:15 - 19:45

Venue: G.36, Barbara Strange Teaching Centre

The Engineers without Borders society will host a panel discussion on gender and race inequalities in engineering at Newcastle University.
The panel will discuss the following questions:
• What are the underlying reasons for the disproportionality in gender in the engineering sector?
• What factors contribute to gender inequality, both in terms of staff numbers and the wage gap?
• What efforts and adjustments can we make to encourage international diversity in the study of engineering and in the engineering workforce?
• Should industry have more say on how engineering is taught in universities?
The event will take place between 18:15 – 19:45 on Tuesday 12 April in room G.36 in the Barbara Strang Teaching Centre.  Refreshments will be provided.
