The objective of this panel is to discuss professionalism and leadership in human factors and ergonomics, namely as they pertain to women in the field. As part of this panel, we aim to provide opportunities and guidance for extending the representation of women in leadership roles throughout the field. The panel will be led by Gabriella Hancock and Kimberly Stowers who will introduce the panel and its role in the HF/E Women's Organization for Mentoring and Networking's larger campaign to foster professional development for future leaders. Panelists will offer their unique perspective(s) on leadership and professional development leveraging their diverse training(s), experiences, career paths, and perspectives on leadership. Members of the audience are encouraged to come prepared with questions for panelists to better learn the panelists' thoughts, opinions, and strategies concerning what could and should be done to encourage female leadership in the future. Drs. Hancock and Stowers will foster discussion amongst the panelists, and invite questions and participation from the general audience.
