Ashley Hughes promotes mentorship and networking during HF/E Society Meeting

At the 2017 annual meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF/E) Society, BHIS assistant professor Ashley Hughes engaged in a number of discussions and hosted activities to promote mentorship and networking between students and professionals in the field.

These activities included panels on landing a job as a newly minted professional and discussing leadership for women in the field. She hosted a Women’s Professional Lunch to further stimulate networking and mentorship among women HF/E students and professionals.  This event fostered conversations around achievements, goals and mentorship among over 150 women. The panel discussing women leadership in the field involved current and past female presidents of the society who responded to student questions and concerns.
