WomEngineers Day to bring advice, resources to Knoxville

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Leadership in the workplace, financial management techniques and finding a work-life balance are a few of the topics on the docket for attendees of a new event coming to Knoxville this spring.

WomEngineers Day will be held at the Knoxville Convention Center on April 11. This event aims to bring together people interested or involved in engineering and other STEM-science, technology, engineering and math-fields of study.

While most attendees will be from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Engineering, the invitation extends to students at local high schools and other universities.

One of the big issues that the conference hopes to address is the low number of women and underrepresented-African-American, Hispanic, Native American, Alaskan Native and Pacific Islander-students in STEM-related fields.

Registration for the event is full.
