1st IAHR young professional women's coffee chat: How to develop sustainable mentor relationships

The share of women in the engineering disciplines is approximately 35 to 40 per cent, depending on the region. The recently created IAHR task force on Strengthening Diversity and Gender Equity intends to raise the profile and visibility of women engineers and especially those who are active within the association. 

Organized on Thursday 10 September 2020 from 4 to 5 p.m. CEST by the IAHR task force on Strengthening Diversity and Gender Equity and Dr Isabella Schalko from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), this first online coffee chat will bring together young professional women to discuss how to develop sustainable mentor relationships.

Prof. Heidi Nepf from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Dr Ellis Penning from Deltares will share their experiences as mentors and give advice to young professional women on how to establish an academic support network.
