Femgineer Forum: Fostering Female Friendly Companies

Companies want to attract more females into their organizations, but they are also concerned about retaining the ones who are present. Sometimes even those most well-intentioned organizations don't have clear strategies for how to do this. Hence, it's up to their employees to show them how, and highlight the endless benefits of a diverse workplace!

In this Femgineer Forum we'll cover the following:

- Strategies on how to build up the confidence you to need to approach supervisors regarding sensitive topics
- Provide you with effective communication techniques for dealing with difficult teammates and supervisors
- Give you a guide to building a culture that attracts and retains females, and is know for being female friendly organization

    I learned from the TED women lectures, that we women quite possibly have an OBLIGATION to speak despite their ideas being very different from most of our colleagues. These ideas include redefining success, so that it includes health and family, caring for others/animals. Also to realize there is a cultural significance to how we speak of these things and the solutions. We are quickly seeing the results of decisions made that did not take health and environment/family into account - a nation of unhealthy people where healthcare is very expensive and the worst quality of all developed nations. WE CAN DEFINITELY do better... now is not the time to be shy. TED women lectures!

    TED Women lectures are a must for anyone looking to create a future with not just women, but women's values... The world needs these now, more than ever.

    sorry, wasn't clear - is this event intended for women only or are men welcome to join? This topic is interesting to me as a company founder but don't want to invade.

    Men are very welcome. The last forum at iSocket had an entire team of men participate and they had lots of inputs.
