CBE WOMEN's Outreach Program selected as shortlisted project for the GEDC Airbus Diversity Award

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

CBE WOMEN's Outreach Program was selected as one of the shortlisted projects for the GEDC Airbus Diversity Award.  

As found on the GEDC website, "The W.O.M.E.N. project is an outreach program introducing economically disadvantaged families from rural upstate New York to career pathways in science and engineering. Graduate students and professors work collaboratively with the target students and their parents in laboratory activities and information sessions. This hands-on experience encourages their interest in engineering studies and equips them with vital knowledge around career paths, college applications and key skills. The project’s goal is to widen participation in engineering studies, creating critical opportunities for women to experience and be inspired by engineering."
