Episode 23

HFE Woman

...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.

Profile picture for Nick Roome

Nick Roome

Nick is currently a Senior UX Researcher at Turvo in the Pacific Northwest, focused on developing innovative solutions and optimizing human performance for SaaS based supply chain logistics programs. Alongside colleague and friends, Blake Arnsdorff and Barry Kirby, Nick hosts and produces Human Factors Cast, a weekly podcast that investigates the sciences of human factors, psychology, engineering, biomechanics, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry and how it affects our interaction with technology. Nick’s other areas of interest include, but are not limited to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, systems engineering, and artificially intelligent systems.

Nick Started Human Factors Cast in early 2016 as a side-project. He believed that the way Human Factors concepts were being communicated is broken and saw a way to fix it. After getting initial traction, Nick moved to work on the Human Factors Cast Digital Media Lab and began assembling a multi-disciplinary team to test out new concepts in Human Factors communication.
