Empowering Women Working Meeting - Salon C 
 Tue January 29th  8 - 10am

All those who share a vision of balanced gender representation in engineering, please consider attending this working session that is open to all. The Empowering Women as Leaders in Systems Engineering (EWLSE) group will be working on a set of activities for the coming years. After an introduction and review of EWLSE activities in progress and the INCOSE IW agenda, members will work on the following activities; planning for a new book on systems engineering to be published by Springer Hill and written and edited by women as one of a series of engineering books authored by women, defining resources to support systems engineering mentoring and obtaining leadership goals for all, and planning for external and internal (within INCOSE) outreach in 2019 and 2020. We will spend the last 15 minutes on wrap-up and collecting everyone's input for an INCOSE Newsletter article on lessons learned. Our outreach meeting follows this meeting, after the morning break! We will gather at a few tables at the final IW day INCOSE lunch for socializing and networking. 

BREAK: 10am to 10:30am - there is a scheduled INCOSE IW break at this time
 Empowering Women Outreach Meeting - Open to All 
Tue January 29th 10:30am - 12:00 Salon C

All those who want to learn about how to teach engineering to females - and males too - by going through a series of example activities demonstrating recommended approaches, please come to this meeting and experience the recommendations for yourself. We need teams of men and women to participate in this fun event. Teams will share their insights at the conclusion of the session. Please consider attending our working meeting that precedes this outreach meeting, before the morning break, and joining us as we gather at a few tables at the final IW day INCOSE lunch for socializing and networking.
