A large percentage of highly skilled women who enter the engineering field end up leaving it. This attrition could be due to a variety of factors including hostile work environments, poor workplace flexibility, and lack of advancement opportunities. All of these factors and more result in women moving to other fields or staying at home, despite their personal ambitions. In this session, women who have left or remained in the engineering workforce will share their experiences and present tools and solutions to help other women navigate difficult workplace environments. The session will also explore how companies can attract and retain women engineers.
