Women in engineering experience obstacles that men may never have to encounter. That’s why every year, DiscoverE, a volunteer community created to celebrate and engage students in engineering, holds a series of free online webinars for women in engineering and other STEM fields. These webinars create conversations around topics that are most important for women in a male-dominated industry. They also provide actionable advice for overcoming obstacles in their careers and everyday lives.
This year’s Global Marathon webinars include:
Each of these webinars will feature speakers and moderators who are considered experts in their fields. They discuss real life situations they’ve experienced throughout their careers and how they overcame obstacles to become successful. At the end of each session, there is a question and answer portion where you can submit questions to each speaker.
Sessions begin at 12 p.m. EST and usually last an hour. People from around the world participate, so you can follow along in the chat room and join the live tweeting by using #GlobalMarathon.
