NEXT IEEE WOMEN IN ENGINEERING MEETING:
My name is Lisa Schoedel and I am the Chair of Women in Engineering Chicago Chapter. After working as an electronics engineer for McDonnell Douglas and as an environmental engineer for Shell Oil Company, I became an attorney, now working at the law firm of Jenner & Block LLP.
I am energized and motivated to bring quality programs to our membership. Since my appointment, I have organized meetings discussing innovation, the importance of a Professional Engineering license, promoting women in the work place, and other programs focused on careers of female engineers. Please check this webpage and the IEEE Chicago Section Calendar for future meeting details.
