TMS 2009: Meeting News


The Role of Women in Materials Science and Engineering...
Posted December 9, 2008

Dawn BonnellWomen have been far outnumbered by men in most science-related professions—including materials science and engineering—for years. Today, the number of women entering into materials science and engineering professions has significantly increased; however, unconscious bias still poses an obstacle to career advancement.

Dawn A. Bonnell, a professor in the Materials Science department at the University of Pennsylvania, will discuss these issues and the current status of women’s roles in science and engineering as well as historic trends at the TMS Women in Science breakfast, to be held at 7 a.m. Monday, February 16, 2009, at the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

Bonnell’s talk, "Women in Science and Engineering: A Personal Perspective," relies heavily on quantitative data from several sources. It discusses issues such as the percentage of women employed in science-related professions at various levels, and explores ways to add diversity to the graduate school applicant pool.

A free breakfast will be provided, but advance registration is required. To register, indicate your attendance on the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting registration form. If you have already registered for the Annual Meeting and did not indicate your attendance to the breakfast lecture, e-mail Margaret Castello at
