...and now for another Human Factors Minute!
What began as an informal group who met for lunch at HFES, HFE Woman became a group of women dedicated to celebrating diversity within the society, specifically by creating an informal setting where issues related to women can be discussed.
As others expressed interest in joining, their size and the scope of their vision grew.
HFE Woman organizes a variety of activities, such as Hosting workshops for professional development, Promoting childcare help for the HFES national meeting, and establishing a presence at other professional conferences, including CHI, and AHFE, among others.
Currently in their second year of organizing a formal event at the annual HFES conference, they hope to expand to local and student chapters as well as other Human Factors and Ergonomics related conferences as their visibility grows. In doing this, they aim to facilitate networks where mentorship and networking with women of the society can occur so that future leaders receive the development they need.
