SWE’s Senior Manager of Research, Roberta Rincon, presented at the 2019 Dialogue on Diversity Entrepreneurship & Information Technology Conference in Washington, DC on September 10, 2019.
Dialogue on Diversity is an official NGO recognized by the United Nations with the following mission: The social and political advancement of women and men from diverse cultural, ethnic, and national traditions, fostering increased economic empowerment through promotion and development of entrepreneurial excellence, technology training, networking, and education.”
Key elements of the presentation focused on the intersection of race and gender in engineering and technology, and highlighted some of the trends, factors, and challenges for women of color in the STEM world.
SWE’s research efforts are committed to identifying the gaps in existing research and awareness around the barriers women, especially those from racial/ethnic or identities underrepresented in STEM, face in pursuing, persisting, and succeeding in the field of engineering and technology.
SWE is pleased to share select slides from the presentation below. To learn more about SWE’s original research, visit: https://research.swe.org/.
