Event description

Description

The SWE-San Diego (SWE-SD) Professional Section cordially invites you to our Annual Celebration and Recognition Banquet. This year we will be celebrating our 37th Year Anniversary as a section! The event will open with networking and a science fair display from this year’s SWE-SD Science Fair Award Recipients.

The keynote speaker for the luncheon is Mary Isaac. Mary is a passionate practitioner and researcher interested in improving female engagement and retention in engineering and technology (E & T) through formal and informal communities of practice. She practiced in the energy business at GE for 30 years with a BS in engineering (Union ’82), retiring from an executive position in 2006 to start her own company focused on engaging more females in engineering (HEDGE Co). She has an MA in teaching (NCAT ’11) and PhD in education (ODU ’15). Besides the Society of Women Engineers, she partners actively with several organizations committed to equity in sTEm fields’ education and assessment, including ASEE, FIRST, AEA, AAUW, and ITEEA. Her dissertation “Priming middle school females’ engagement in engineering and technology” examined data validity from an instrument used to measure girls’ attitudes about engineering and technology. Her research interests lie in examining the socio-cultural-economic aspects of engaging and retaining females in engineering and technology fields, specifically as it relates to the community of practice of female engineers and potential engineers, including SWE and others. She serves on National Science Foundation (NSF) panels and regularly evaluates proposals for funding, awards, and conference sessions in her work with SWE and others.
