Women in Making Forum

Saturday, March 30, 2019
9:00am – 4:30pm

Storrs Campus
Werth Tower

UConn’s first ever Women in Making Forum seeks to highlight the successes of challenges of the women of the maker movement. We will identify barriers to entry and discuss best practices to navigate these barriers in a panel discussion. There will be speakers on inclusivity, gender bias, and the history of women in making. Additionally, we will host skill-building workshops which celebrate crafting, mending, and repurposing as traditionally feminist self-reliant practices and the origin of the maker movement. All are welcome.
