Upcoming ASEE Panel Session: Global Women's Voices: Insights from Women in Predominately Muslim Countries with High Female Engineering Participation
Panelists will disseminate initial findings from focus group interviews seeking to understand the mechanisms that support high levels of women's engineering participation. While the conversation will feature focus group data from female undergraduate engineering students, faculty, and practicing engineers in Jordan, Tunisia, and Malaysia, panelists will also discuss aspects of international collaboration and data collection, including plans for study in Saudi Arabia and the United States. The panelists will draw from their different disciplinary backgrounds - sociology, engineering, engineering education - to make observations and solicit discussion.
