IEEE WOMEN IN ENGINEERING MEETING @ Robert Morris University, Chicago Campus, Room 816
Aug 30 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

IEEE WOMEN IN ENGINEERING MEETING

Ever feel like you’re speaking a foreign language when trying to communicate with the opposite sex?  Think there just may be some truth behind “men are from Mars; women are from Venus?”  Maybe that is because our brains are actually very different.  Starting before we are born, male and female brains develop differently, which contributes to differences in communication and leadership styles.  Learn about these differences while gleaning insights into cross-gender communication and tips to manage the opposite sex.

Dayna Johnson is a Commercial Manager for GE Energy Connections, working on proposals for substation projects.  Prior to GE, she worked for many years as a civil engineer.  Her time in male-dominated industries has spurred her passion for gender differences topics.  Dayna is active in Toastmasters and SWE.  She is currently serving as one of the two Senators for Region H.  She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Master of Engineering Management from Valparaiso University.  In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, their son, and their family dog.  She also enjoys home improvement and traveling.

Agenda

  • 6:00-6:15pm: Introductions 
  • 6:15-7:15pm: Presentation by Dayna Johnson
