You are invited to a special screening of the award-winning film, PIONEERS IN SKIRTS, followed by a live panel discussion at the Virtual IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference from June 23-24, 2020!


PRICE: This event is FREE, thanks to the generous support of the IEEE Women in Engineering leadership team!

SIGN UP: You must register for the Tuesday and Wednesday events online at: ieee-wie-ilc.org/pioneers-in-skirts

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO ALL (IEEE members and non-members) AROUND THE GLOBE! We’ve made this event sharable so that you can invite your friends and colleagues anywhere in the world.

ABOUT: Pioneers in Skirts is a feature length documentary discussing the gender bias and sexism women confront in their careers and, in relatable story telling, offers strategies for what we all can do right now to move the culture past it — at work, in our society, and at home.

The film is ideal for FAMILIES who are raising children to think critically and speak up against sexism and gender inequalities, COMPANIES who are building their culture of solidarity and support, and COMMUNITIES who are providing ways for people to work together for the common good.
