This page serves as a landing page for a professional flyer (See image to the right) I’ve created about me, my current work, and my summer 2013 conference presentations.
Currently my work is focused on three avenues: my dissertation research, the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity, and Big Beacon.
Meagan’s dissertation is a multiple case study analysis of girls’ experiences in high school engineering using intersectional feminist theory, answering the question: How does race, class, gender and sexuality influence high school girls’ experiences in engineering? The findings will inform curriculum developers and educators, improving the instruction of engineering for female students, and thus positively influencing the disparity in the field. Learn more about Meagan’s dissertation research.
National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity is a non-profit organization dedicated to access, equity, and diversity in education and the workplace. As a STEM Equity consultant for NAPE, Meagan develops and facilitates workshops, and designs practical tools and activities related to STEM Careers for educators, counselors, and STEM role models. Learn more about Meagan’s work with NAPE.
Big Beacon is a Movement to Transform Engineering Education. Meagan is the Lead Volunteer responsible for developing and growing the Ambassador network, a consortium of people who are committed to challenging the status quo and transforming engineering education. Join us for our weekly Twitter Chat, Wednesdays at 8 PM Eastern, using #BigBeacon. Learn more about Meagan’s work with BigBeacon.

Meagan, I would love to get the teachable moments from your research and integrate them into the outreach programming for National Engineering Month here in Ontario in 2014! Wish I could follow you around with a notepad/video camera! 🙂 But in lieu of that please do keep me in the loop with copies of presentations, etc. Buen viajesss, amiga!
