Title of the workshop: Engineering, Marketing and Women: A perfect match
Summary: No time to waste! Changing women’s idea of engineering has to start early. Create excitement and interest and become a mentor and leader today.
As every engineer knows, it takes more than advanced math and science skills to succeed in the field. Engineers must approach problems with an open mind and be willing and able to work within a team to find unique solutions. Women tend to have a high level of creativity, strong communication skills and the ability to work well within groups, making them an innate fit for engineering.
